I feel you. I hate buying store eggs.

Yes. 2 year old hens at solstice probably wouldn't be laying now.

They may kick in again by February.

My girls are laying very sporadically now, too, and I have 20+ layers. I have egg customers that I'm still trying to supply (even in greatly reduced quantities), so I've had to really restrict my own egg consumption. Pretty depressing after a summer/early fall of getting a dozen and a half a day, but that's how it seems to work out...feast or famine.

I have a good tofu scramble recipe, though. 😉

Commercial egg farms have only young birds in black out housing and on a strict lighting schedule. Hence, laying machines.

It's encouraged me to be creative with recipes - using ground flax seed as a substitute binder, for example. This will pass!
