Mama has a big Road Island Red that quit laying for about 3 weeks then started back. No explanation for either that we can see. Guess she needed a little R&R

Any old varmint will eat eggs, if it gets a chance.................doesn't have to be a shamelesss one.

But most will leave at least a little bit of the shell behind. A snake is about the only one to take the whole darn thing and leave nothing. Wink But snake is not eating one a day, unless it is a big O'l imported one. Or you got more slithering around than even O'l Shameless says you do. LOL 

My guess is they are taking a break because of hot weather. But dang old chicken been known to eat their own eggs if you have the deluxe coop than no varmint can get in. So start checking early in the day and do it every hour or to to start with.


On giving more thought, you got dog that could take a egg in one gulp...................there is a Nebrasky fellow who would train your dog to do that and think is real funny.

If I remember right, there is a few weeks that them chickens will go on strike, seems to be late summer,something to do with molting, IIRC. I'm surprised they all quit all at one time

How old are these chickens? Mine are about to complete year one........has been 95F + for most of last month, and they have laid steady through it all. 13 birds.......9 to 10 egg average.

Will all molt and shut down late fall.......say Nov/Dec. That lasts 4 to 6 weeks. With luck, they stagger it so get enough eggs then to keep us running.

So then Spring of 2023, will need to start the next flock. This bunch will be spent.
