I have 5 hens and all I'm averaging is one egg per day. Two of the hens are 2 1/2 years old, one is 1 1/2, and two are 6 months. I have a light on in the coop from 3 AM till daylight. They get the best food and plenty of treats. And I'm getting tired of feeding non-productive birds. The egg production has been like that for months now, and I believe the one egg is from a newer bird.
