Since my six hens began laying in June egg production has been stedadly increasing to a peak of five a day on average just two weeks ago. Over the past week i've been getting fewer and fewer and over the past two days they have layed none. Two weeks ago I bought more food, but I accedently got layer mash insted of the pellets (Same brand). I found out that it is not feeding properly in my feeder so they went a few days with less than average amount of food, but there was still plenty of grass clippings, bugs and leftovers for them to eat so I'm not sure that they went hungry. I am wondering what could have caused them to stop laying. They are nine months old, could they beginning to molt? Did I starve them? What is the deal? Please Help.
