    Help!! Need advice. I have a flock if 28 hens. My egg production is terrible. Some days i get 8 others 2 or 4. I have increased my protein and have a light in the coop. I need ideas. The birds very in ages but none should be older then 2 years. My brother has halfbthe flock i have and gets way more eggs then i get.

    Breeds and time of year has a lot to do with having low production right now. The better egg layers have resumed and most poorer layers haven't. In the next month most will resume again.
