Jamie: talked to a guy who has a chicken farm, he says that when chickens stop laying eggs they are molting...we had one do this she lost all of her feathers and stop laying eggs...to get them through this put them back on the starter feed that they were on as babies for a few days and that should help....we have noticed that one will not lay an egg the next day after getting scratch so we do not give it to them as often...also to make eggs have a stronger shell give them oyster shells to peck at...can you let me know how yours do with adding new babies we want to get a couple more but we have been told that our ladies (Bacon & Eggs) will peck at them and not be very nice.....I almost bought some ducks but decided with Golden Retrievers maybe not a good idea :-)
