    I've gone soft.. stupid chickens

    I've 4 chickens and none of then have laid an egg in 4-5 weeks so fair enough I thought, chop em, cook em, eat them and get more but then I went out and they all came running looking up at me in that hey have you brought us some treats kind of way and I bottled it.

    Is there no way of re-stimulating them to lay again ? I don't own chickens, but one day maybe I'll have the room.

    Hens need about 14hrs of daylight to eat enough to produce an egg daily.
    When I had hens I had a light on a timer in the pen which would give them the requisite time to eat sufficient to produce. This way they laid all through the winter months.
    Another tip is to only feed them layers pellets so theyre getting everything they need.
    otherwise grow a pair and neck them
    Below is a link to my website.

    all 9 of mine have just stopped laying and they have started moulting. They always stop at the onset of autumn and the moult. Not unusual for them to start again but it could be sporadic til next spring. Dont get too concerned. The light timer thing works well but I normally try to give my hens a few weeks off before I start with artificial light.

    How old are they and what breed?

    Give more details mate I.e... age, feeding routine, food etc...
    They will becoming into moult soon. I've got six years experience so pretty clued up.
    Never over feed them more so treats.
    New introductions will stop them from laying.
    Or failing that do your Norwegian impressions bloody hilarious mate.
