  1. I went to check on them after lunch, and waiting for me were 2 eggs! How very random.....is it normal that both would come back into lay at the same time?
  2. Eeeekk still no eggs! They look very happy, I've checked pellets which are fine, I cut out all kitchen s"Ooops, word censored!"s,tried chicken tonic, and wormed the older 2 hybrids, and still nothing. How can we go from happily laying, to moving and enlarging the run a month ago and nothing now? Can't see any "hidden" eggs, nor where any other creature could get in and steal the eggs....... Any other advice please?
  3. Am a complete newbie to hen keeping, so be gentle! I have 5 hens 2 are about 20 weeks old, and 3 are around 11 weeks. On arrival we had them in a smaller run and after a few days the older girls started laying again. One only seemed to lay double-yolkers and the other would lay every 2 days rather than daily. I felt their run was too small, so we have now moved them to a much larger run where they seem much happier. Problem is the 2 older girls have now stopped laying. They are hybrids. They have cider vinegar a couple of times a week in their water, are fed on layers pellets and will eat occasional kitchen s"Ooops, word censored!"s, have grit, and look to be in fine health. The only thing I can think of is that having roosted on the bars they have started sleeping in the nesting box at night. Could this stop them from laying? We've had no egg action for 12 days........ I've checked all over the run for eggs, but nothing. Advice please.....!
