I have some Red Stars I got from you all on the first week of Feb. I was getting around 7 eggs per day in late July early Aug. Now I am not getting any. Have only gotten 10 eggs since Aug. 22 I don't know what's going on. I have around 30 birds 19 are Red Stars. Others are assorted breeds. None are laying

It could be several things.
1) They all could be molting, which often interrupts egg laying.
2) A predator has found a new source of protein (Your eggs)
3) Something environmental has totally disrupted their routine, such as predators constantly attempting to break in, or dietary changes.

For my money, look very hard at predators. To test that, place an egg out there in the nesting boxes and see if it disappears.

I purchased 4 pulletts at the end of July and they have not latex any eggs. This has never happened before. Suggestions?
