Bill : I didn’t have any luck trying to find the answer to my question on your website. Here is my situation. I have six adult chickens, about one year old, and since they have started laying they have given us 5-6 eggs on a daily basis and then yesterday we only got one egg. What went wrong? Any ideas you can share would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Bill McChain
My Reply : It is very strange that they (nearly) all stopped on the same day – perhaps there was a noise or disturbance nearby that put them off, or they had laid some but something stole the eggs. If it continues then there may be some sort of nutritional/health issue (or egg thieves) but usually if there was a health reason they wouldn’t all stop on exactly the same day so most likely it is just a temporary blip which could have been due to a disturbance or egg thief.
