We have 10 hens and 1 Rooster, 4 hens we raised from chicks and now they are around 30 weeks old. The other 6 hens we purchased from a local farmer who was getting rid of some of his older stock. We have had the new girls for about 6 weeks and we were getting 2-4 eggs a day for a good 2-3 weeks. The hens we raised started laying a few here and there and we were up to 4-6 eggs a day. For about 3 weeks now we are only getting 2-3 eggs a day. We know the older girls aren't going to lay everyday and we know some may not lay at all, its hard to tell who's laying and who's not. Any ideas on what's going on or thoughts on how to help us get some more production?
We do let them out of their coop almost everyday and we have checked for hiding places.
