    Freshly Laid Egg
  1. Thanks for taking the time to reply - the older hens (2.5yo) are hybrids and all laid well year one and only one lays now- We had expected longer. Millefleur wyandotte bantam pullets which are pure breed. e were told they were 14 weeks when we got them 15 weeks ago. We suspect they were a lot younger as they were hold in the hand sized. We worm with Flubenvet feed every 3 months and their daily feed is Copdock Range Layer Pellets which they all seem to love. They are all good sizes, free from lice, the big 3 have very red combs and wattles and the little ones are redder than when we got them but still paler than the others. We have added vit d to the water and gave them mealworms- nothing seems to work. Whilst they are pets we got them for the egg laying and 1 every 2 days for 6 chickens is somewhat dire. Any advice gratefully received.
  2. We have 3 chickens (now aged 2.5) and having all been pretty proficient in laying for their first 12 months, we have been averaging around one egg per week between them - what's happened, what's gone wrong, what can we do to remedy the situation. I would say that all 3 remain very lively and don't appear to have any health concerns. They have a nice home, plenty of room for exercise and we spend the money on providing them the best food possible. Does anybody have pearls of wisdom or ideas as to what else we can try? thanks
