"Any chance they could be hiding the eggs somewhere? My friend has chickens that change up where they lay. Her chickens are suburban free-range - they have a big backyard to wander around in. Maybe keep all of them in the coop for a day or two?"

I know I can't force Mother Nature but does anyone have ideas on how to nudge her. Last year I gAve them a couple servings of soybeans and they took off. Tried this year and nothing. I…See More

Eric Randall Peterson replied to Lucinda Sherman's discussion chicken health in the group ABQ Chicken Keepers
"Sounds like they are right on schedule. They may get a little erratic in their laying schedule. The change in the amount of daylight can make them slow down. My Rhode Island Reds kept laying big brown eggs daily but my Americanas were almost…"

"We have had them a couple of years and did a ton of reading too. We don't worry as much now and you will get there eventually. They are very entertaining and sweet though my rooster doesn't like me and I keep telling him I'm going to…"

"I agree. They will keep warm on their own. If you heat them and the power goes out they might freeze. My perch is protected from the wind and rain/snow but stil plenty of ventilation for fresh air. The electricity I do use is for the heated metal…"
