I have 10 hens, and they’re about 7 months old. I was getting eggs from just about all of them daily, and for the last few days they’ve all just stopped laying. I’ve gotten about four eggs total in the last four days. It’s definitely getting colder here, could that be the reason, or is it something I should be more concerned about?

Many chickens take a break in the winter when the daylight hours are less. Most need about 12 hours of daylight or artificial light to lay over the winter. Even at that many pullets will continue to lay over winter in their first year.
