I live in Vancouver, Washington. I have 10 hens. All of them have been laying reliably for the last 2 months or so. For the last month & a half all of them have been laying big beautiful eggs. We’ve gotten between 8-12 eggs a day. We where right in the middle of all the smoke from the forest fires & the last couple days have been rainy & chilly. Now the last 3 days we’ve only gotten 2-3 eggs from our hens. None of them are molting. Their still eating & drinking plenty. I don’t know what’s going on. I expected them to slow down laying eggs when the temp dropped but for them to drop egg production so fast & so extreme scares me. What can I do to help them? Could they be sick?
