I went to go pick up hay yesterday from a man who has chickens. He sells eggs and vegetables at the farmer's market. I told him about getting my first eggs and we were just talking about feed, etc. He told me he quit giving vegetable/fruit scraps (they do a lot of canning, too) because he noticed every time he gave them the veggie/fruit peelings etc, the hens would quit laying for a day or so. Anyone else ever noticed this? I haven't read anything here about that, so thought I would ask.
