I have a BO and an EE neither of whom has laid more than a half-dozen eggs this calendar year. They're both about 18mos old and were laying at a normal rate. They seemed to molt back in the winter, but never really started production again after. I like my birds, but like my wife says, they're freeloaders at this point (LOL). They get layer pellets and scratch, along with lots of grasshoppers in the spring/summer and table scraps. It's been awfully hot this summer, but if they don't start back up soon...... Any way to coax them into laying an egg once in a while?
