Ugh, been there. When I had my egg layers a month before the wife moved out, the son kept telling me the chickens weren't laying very many eggs. It was his chore to tend to the chickens.I'm pretty sure it is a management/feeding issue from DS15 not following directions. I went out to check the coop this morning and he hadn't fed them before he went to school.
Only getting 6 or so a day. Since it was Dec, it didn't really seem that odd. One day, at the urging of his mom, he flat out said he wasn't doing it any more.
I went out and found over 70 eggs packed in the nesting boxes and on the coop floor. At least they were being feed, thank goodness
