Our hens used to lay 5-6 eggs a day and are now only laying 2-3 daily. Is it getting dark early doing this? Or are the looting already? We got them as chicks in March. They started laying in August. I think they need more time out in the run, but my hubby likes them in the coop when we are all at work and school. They did break out today, so I can see his point.
