Drop in Egg Production

Once your hens are laying, they will produce eggs regularly - but not like clockwork. Egg production drops off at various times, for these reasons:

  • Molting - the time when when chickens lose and regrow their feathers

  • Any type of shock - this can cause egg production to end suddenly

  • Dehydration is a prime cause, so always make sure your birds have plenty of clean water

  • Sometimes the lack of eggs can be due to your hens laying in secret! If your birds free range in the garden they may have left their eggs under a bush or in a quiet corner
