    I have 20 pullets 26 weeks old. They have been laying for about 2 months. I was getting 15 to 17 eggs per day. A few days ago I switched them to laying mash plus it has been getting about 30 deg at night. Their production has dropped to 9 or 10 per day. What do you think might be the reason?

    White leghorns

    I have 5 White Leghorns which I hatched. They are 3 1/2 weeks old and I can't believe how large they are. This is a small breed of chicken. One has a very visible comb and the other 4 don't.
