i have 6 hens and only 2 and a half are laying. i say a "half" cuz my EE use to lay about 5 eggs a week. now she only lays 2 eggs a week. so out of my 6 girls: 2 - moulting (they have an excuse) 1 - not laying (no excuse) she's a 7 month old SS and WAS laying but now has stopped and she's NOT moulting....no feathers seen ANYWHERE. 2 - laying quite well 1 - EE - slowed to 2 eggs a week i understand hens stop laying when they moult. but why would my SS stop laying and why is my EE only laying 2 a week? btw, my EE use to lay a light sage green egg, and now they're almost white....i know this means that she is nearing the end of her cycle...do you think that's why she's only laying 2 a week? i thought they would lay like normal, and then stop when they moult. i didn't think they would slow down. also, why the heck isn't my SS laying? also, all my girls are fairly young. the oldest 2 are only a year a half old.
