Hi everyone out there in chicken land,
We have just started having chickens or chookens as I have been heard to call them. We have 4 Isa Browns. They came to us at 20 weeks of age and to begin with we were getting 3 eggs a day but now are down to 1 sometimes 2 if we are lucky. Can anyone give me some insight into why they aren't laying.

Try giving them a little more protein. Eggshells are great for this. Also table scrap meats. If it has been hot where you live sometimes they will drop off laying dramatically. Also do a good search of wherever they live, they don't always use the nestboxes and can lay in some weird places.

Just for clarification eggshells have Calcium and not protein. Eggs themselves are an excellent source of protein - natures perfect food.
