3 weeks ago, I removed 1 chicken from my coop/run for being nasty and causing injury to the others. I had been getting 2 to 3 eggs every other day from 5 chickens. The girls completely stopped laying the day I removed the one nasty bird. This past week I had to remove another and send her off to Cluckatraz as I stated in a previous thread. The first to be removed has layed nearly everyday sine September and still continues, even tho she is in jail. But those in the coop/run have not layed since. Is this normal or just a coincidence? I do not know which of Buffs was laying in the first place, but I do know for a fact ,that the 2 Plymouth Rocks have layed and continue to lay well. Also, the Buffs will not go on the roost in the coop, one sleeping on the floor and the other 2 in the nesting boxes. They are all 10 months old. Any ideas?
