I've been worried about my girls since the last snow storm. Only one egg, every few days in contrast to the 4 a day I was getting before. I assumed it was the snow, the soggy food, etc. But there is a couple other things going on... for one, our neighbors chickens: they are in our yard all the time- not in my girls' coop, but around it, until I get out there with the b-b gun. This has been going on for about a month, though, and the egg thing has only been the last couple of weeks. The other thing is...I realized my White silkie started laying for the first time about 2 weeks ago. She has tiny little white eggs- and those are the only ones that have been in there. She is the very bottom of the pecking order- could there be some reason why the others would strike in this case? Like..."I'm not laying here is shes laying here!" Does that happen? As far as I can tell, though, they're not laying anywhere else. I've very sad- I usually have an overflowing 18-pack all the time in my fridge, and now, I'm thinking...I may have to get eggs from someone else!!!
