Could be the dogs?   I would try and isolate the birds so they don't see any other animals around them except for you, when they're feed etc.  Did this problem start before the dogs chewed up the tarp? Thunder storms seem to slow my pheasants down from there normal laying cycle.

Dogs chewed the tarp in the winter.  My friend has some of these birds HEns and siblings and they are laying normal.

  That leaves environment, feed, water and light.  Sounds like they are outside, so light is probably OK.  Do they sometimes get low on water?  What, exactly are you feeding?  Is friend feeding exactly the same, including calcium source?

  I'd also suspect that the dogs have them off balance, and nervous, but check everything else, too.  Where are you located?  My Chukar egg supplier says his Pheasant are winding down, now.
