Hi Fiddler - that is quite normal for this time of year. I have 11 hens and at present am just getting the odd egg from one of my Sussex hens. Once the days start to get longer you will find that the hens start to lay again. Mine started mid February this year.  :)

I have now had 5 eggs from 4 chickens in the last week and a half!

3 from my speckled lady hybrid who is 5.5 years old!  and 2 from my Columbine who is 2.5 years old (she lays cream coloured eggs not green or blue though)!

My 3 pekins aren't even contemplating laying eggs just yet...

how old are they and what breed?
Staffies are softer than you think.

how old are they and what breed?

Black rocks, Bovans white, goldline, Coral reef and one cream leg bar who isn't laying but that is normal for her breed.

As to age we have three about 5 months and the others are a couple of years old.

That would be a contributing factor, for sure.   ;)
