So I don't really think our hens are heartbroken, BUT they have been laying considerably less eggs since we lost our rooster. Our coop is in my MIL's yard and when her neighbors complained about his crowing, he had to go. A few days later he was roasted and shredded for some delicious tacos :/.

It's been a little over 3 weeks that the rooster has been gone and we've had about half the usual amount of eggs ever since. I can't find anything online about hens not laying eggs with the loss of a rooster specifically, but I know that traumatic events and disruptions can have that effect on them.

Just hoping someone has experienced this or has some insight. Thanks so much in advance!
