A Drop in Egg Production



The fireworks that just happened on Saturday may make your chickens not lay as much the next few days.  Fireworks scare chickens and when they are scared they don't like to lay eggs.  To make them feel relaxed and happy you can put some dried herbs in their nesting boxes.  You can also give them treats, cold water and hugs.

There are a lot of other things besides fireworks that can make your chickens not lay as many eggs:

Age
Stress
Molting
Really Hot
Really Cold
Sickness
Broodiness
Egg bound
Egg Eating
Predators
Too Many Chickens in the Coop
Too Many Treats
Not Enough Water
Shorter Days


Thanks for reading!
