In my younger flock, I have 5 girls that started laying in August. Through August and first part of Sept, i was getting 4-5 eggs (3 brown, 1 green, 1 blue) from them. Then suddenly, no more eggs from my EEers. Still getting abotu 2 brown eggs per day, but no blue or green eggs. I thought something was stealing them, but the only thing i can think that would go after eggs and leave the chickens alone are rats. But would rats only take the blue and green eggs and leave the brown? And would they take them and leave no trace behind? Usually, snakes would eat all the eggs and still be laying around digesting when I go out, so I ruled them out. So then I thought, Maybe it was a 2 legged thief. So I put on the padlock. It hasn't changed the missing blue and green eggs. Seriously.... i expected a decrease due to the time of year, but I havent' gotten an egg from either EE in 3 weeks. Any ideas about what is going on? Please help! BTW.... my older flock are in heavy molt and with decreasing light and I am still getting about 4 eggs per day from 6 hens.
