Hens stopped laying
by Carol Ballantyne
(San Jose, Ca. USA)
We got our chicks 3 years ago ( 3 Rhode Island Reds and 3 Bovan Browns) they layed great for the first 2 years, now we are only getting 1 or 2 eggs a day...they all seem alert and active and eating well..we feed them commercial Laying crumbles, oyster shells and occ. Manna supplement, we also give them vegi scraps from the kitchen and lots of greens from the garden. We live in San Jose, Calif, so we have early spring and mild winters.
What can we do to help them start laying again ??
