I have 3 Light Sussex, 3 Bantams and 2 cockerels, all around 3 years old. In April this year, 2011, I introduced 3 new birds to my flock. 1 cockerel and 2 Cream Legbar Hens. One of my bantams then disappeared, and turned up 3 weeks later with 8 chicks. I later sold my 2 L/Sussex cockerels as they kept fighting. My old girls were still laying around 1-2 eggs per day between them, but now I haven't had any eggs in the nesting boxes for over 3 weeks. My Legbars are now about 28 weeks old and I haven't seen any eggs off them, and the chicks are about 18 weeks old, and I was wondering when the mother hen should start to lay again? Also thought I'd mention, my chickens are free range and run in a large medow with our 7 geese, and that the weather has been atrocious, one minute hot and sunny the next it's blowing a gale with winter storms inc sleet and thunder?? Any suggestions as to where my eggs are????
