Scorcher that's great news about your layers. My pullets too have begin laying. I get on egg per day most days. They are PR's and one is a blue cochin mix but I'm sure she hasn't started yet. An egg a day is better than no eggs, lol.

I'm in Conway. I have 4 hens in my back yard right in city limits they give us a few fresh eggs everyday even with it being so cold out. I'm so proud of my girls

Wow! With only four layers I'm getting an egg a day or at least until the snow hit that is. I haven't had any since. They wouldn't even come out their dark coop until yesterday.

My production dropped during that spell too but it seems to have mostly recovered. Most of mine are pullets laying through their first winter but a couple of older hens have finished their molt and gone back to laying.

I have a main run that didn’t get much snow in it and an open area in electric netting that had maybe one inch of snow. I had a few that never left the coop but most went into the main run the first day. I saw tracks where a couple took a short walk in the snow the first day but it was a short trip. The second day there were a lot more tracks and I saw some walking out in it. Then it melted.

This too shall pass.  It may pass like a kidney stone, but it will pass.

If mine dropped their production it wasn't much. I'm still getting between 9 and 12 eggs a day. Although I think it effects mine a little more a day or two after the storms.

Well I grabbed up one of my PR pullets yesterday that I thought was probably laying but she is only two fingers wide. I may only have one or two laying since I am only getting one egg per day. I need to check out all my girls instead of guessing. Since they are all about eight months old I thought for sure they were all laying. Oh well, that's what I get for thinking, lol.

I check all the pullets and definitely only one pullet is laying. I guess I was lucky to be get 6 eggs a week or at least I was before the big 2 inch snow of 2017, lol. Finally, four days later I have an egg.

Hey all.  I've been on the road and then recovering from some kind of sickness.  Just saw this elsewhere:

Don't know anything about this place, but this might be useful for some of you.  :-)
