If you are supplying the correct vitamins and calcium, then there may be a possibility it is to do with the lighting. After and before laying are crucial times to have good laying for females.

Possibly impaction from overfeeding after laying. I guess I'm just sprouting out thoughts since I haven't any details to go on.

This is something where you have to go over your entire husbandy to solve, and then in addition your detailed practices with how you care for gravid females. Survival is determined on preparation for birthing and the recovery.
