I have a bunch of laying hens. Some young (<1yr), some medium (2.5yrs), and some older (>3yrs). Out of 14 hens that can lay, I'm getting between 0 and 4 eggs per day. This has been since mid-summer. Ugh. I'm ready to eat them all and start over with a fresh bunch in the spring, I'm so exasperated. The 4 older hens were giving 1 per day. I think 3 have just quit laying altogether. The 7 medium hens are the ones I fully expect to produce for me. They're beautiful. Australorps and 2 mixed breeds. The 3 youngsters hatched just before Easter, so they can lay. But only 1 or 2 of them have. Don't know what's with the 3rd one. So what to do? I'm giving them Nutrena layer pellets, occasional scratch, occasional wild game bird crumbles to boost their protein. I've kept giving the kitchen scraps just to the older ones since I gave up on their laying a while ago and wondered if the irregularity of scraps messes up their laying. They all get well water like all of us. They're all in moveable chicken tractors that get moved nearly every day, except the 2 mixed breeds who are in a fixed pen. Any recommendations for me? I just think it's so sad that I'm at the grocery buying 3 dozen eggs every week for my family.
