    I've been feeding purina/layina to my flock and their egg laying is the same as during the summer and in the winter hens usually slow down laying or completely stop and mine are laying like in the summer and i just wanted to know if this is normal and if this is because there are hormones in the feed.

    First-year pullets will usually lay through their first winter.
