    since the last one.

    I have changed their routine, so was thinking that could be why(?)
    And the temps have dropped significantly the last two days With the wind chill it will be below 0 today easily. (I am kicking myself for not getting a remote starter in the truck.)

    With the cold temps, a none insulated metal shed(getting done come spring!) as a coop I have been bringing them into the house the last two nights. Today and tomorrow they have run of my basement during the day and will be back in their cages at night so I can clean up after them.
    Luckily we have a cement floor and nothing down there is vitally important. Dh is just happy they arent in the kitchen or running free in the living room. [​IMG]

    Last time I had to move them I still got eggs. I am just worried that not laying suddenly will hurt Natalie and whomever else was laying. They are all eating drinking and being themselves though.[​IMG]

    In my limited experience I would say it was the move.

    Most likely it is the move. THey like routine. THey stress when pulled out of their routine. When they stress--no eggs.
