Hi all, we have 4 chooks who are not laying more 1 egg a week between them (if that) i.e. we think one or two girls lay every now and then but the others are freeloading!

Two Barnevelders (3 years old) plus two Isa Browns, (3-3.5 years old)
Large fenced run in our suburban backyard, easy access to water and pellets, no other pets to stress them
They overnight in a converted timber cubby house that is raised off the ground
Wormed a couple of months ago
Outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne

There is no nasty behaviour going on and they seem happy and healthy enough. Would love any clues!
Thank you
P&L

The Isa Browns would certainly be starting to slow down egg production, I'm not sure about the barnevelders. I think your chooks are starting to get old. :-)
