One of our hens has suddenly stopped laying. It's been at least five days, maybe a little more since she laid an egg. We know which one, because we only have one that lays blue eggs. We now have a full dozen eggs with no blue one.
The others seem to have slowed down a bit. Does summer heat affect them? We were keeping a tarp over their run, because it has been raining so often. But that means they were getting sun only when they were out free ranging our back yard (anywhere between four and six hours a day). Would that make a difference?
But although they have slowed down a little compared to spring, they are all still producing except the blue egg layer.
What would make this happen and is there anything we can do to get her back on track? They all have laying hen feed on demand all the time, with Omega 3 supplement mixed in. They get oyster shells and grits. They get a snack treat that is sunflower seeds, raisins, etc. They get marigold petals and occasional fruit scraps (strawberry tops, etc). And they free range. Anything missing?
