I fed my 8 hens a medium-small pumpkin and an average sized spaghetti squash. When I came back in the morning both pumpkin and squash were completely hollowed. then I noticed that their waterer was empty. I washed it and got it right back into action. Not sure if it was that way the day before or not (they go through a lot more water than I expect). Now their egg production had dropped from 4-6 a day to 1-2. Will they get back into laying again or have I broken them for good?! Their has been a little temperature change and a bit of cloudiness but I wouldn't think enough to really affect them but I'm new so what do I know. All my birds are supposed to be cold hardy and we just had our first night or two at the freezing mark. Any advice will help me smooth my feathers. Thanks in advance.
