Hi everyone,
I'm a bit baffled why all of a sudden in the last 7- 10 days I've gone from getting regularly 5 eggs a days from my 5 isa browns to 3. It hasn't been that hot (mid 20's), I did have 3 tiny eggs on consecutive days, am I missing something or is that to be expected from isa's? :thanks:

Hi
A lot of pure
breeds go off the lay at this time of year. Isa should still be laying well. Keep your eye out for an egg eater.
cheers essie

This is the third recent post I have read about Isa's stopping egg production. I'm having the same problem!! Strange for a breed who aren't known to... hmmm... :?
