I got my girls in late summer 2014 and they bloomed to great producers by winter of 2015. Their first laying year they did great then last winter it dwindled. Now I get two eggs sometimes every other day out of my 12 girls. All my girls look great. No bugs, no injuries, clean coup, warm coup, well drafted coup, cool coup: NO predators, no dogs, no cats. I've tried electrolytes in their water, high protein food, change of scratch, more calcium, heat when its cold, no heat when its cold, changed nesting boxes, sprayed on stress relief spray; I've tried less scrapes, more scrapes, more free range days, to no more free range days (they give me no eggs on free range days and then for days after no eggs), changed resting poles to help with pecking order. I've made these changes spaced out. I'd try something for a couple-few weeks then try something else. Obviously some changes stuck around like nesting box changes and resting poles. These last 10 months have been draining our desire to have chickens, and they did so so well their first year which is what has gotten me saying, WHAT the Flock? Side bar, early this summer I added six chicks but by then the reduction in eggs had already gone to two-three every other day for about four months. Out of the six chicks we ended up butchering 3 roosters late summer. We get 2 eggs a day now from the three new girls. Not sure who is laying when. Been about three months since we removed the roosters, still no change in the older girls. When do I throw in the towel and admit defeat? If I don't figure it out quick, hubby is sharpening his knife.
