Hi, all - I just got back from a 2-week vacation in MT and WY. The wonderful neighbors who watched our 2 mature hens and 11 chicks reported that the hens laid only 3 eggs in the 2 weeks while we were gone. I was noticing that the egg production had dropped from 1 or 2 per day to one or two every three days. The hens are mature, probably about 4 years old (got them from my cousin earlier this year). Is this normal? I was assuming the drop in laying was due to the heat lately, but it seems like they've shut off completely.
