I am new to this forum and I am not certain if this is the right thread. Anyways, we had two Golden Comets/Isa Browns that have laid almost every day. We then added several more chickens into the coop and about eight 1-2 month old chicks. For about three weeks after a heat wave (80 degrees, not too bad), the chickens haven't laid at all. Except for the two Golden Comets which have continued to lay. We were getting about 5-6 eggs a day with 7 hens and now are getting two eggs a day. The chickens are free range all day, inside a large fenced-in-yard. We do lock them all inside the coop at night due to local predators. Thanks!
