Hey up celtbhoy  :)
What you feeding them on ? not made them fatties by too many treats have you ?

But like RH says check them over for mite, sure sign is if they a reluctant to go to roost.
He who asks is a fool for five minutes, but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.

On strike then  :lol:

seriously I'd knock the leftovers on the head for a week or two and cut down the corn mix to, perhaps a small handful each late afternoons if you can. Do they have access to oyster and grit ?

just a thought, have a look round in case they are laying, and hiding eggs? eg under the shed?

Pets:if you don't love them like family, don't have them
