    Hi! I was wondering if everyone's chickens are already experiencing decreased production for the fall? We got our chickens on May 1st at 3 days old. We have 2 EE's, 2 Astrolorps, 2 RIR and 1 barred rock. We were getting 4-6 eggs form our 7 chickens every day,, but now we get anywhere from 1-3 and I haven't seen any blue-green eggs from the EE's for 2 weeks. Any ideas?

    I don't know, maybe they're molting? do they look kind of shaggy? I know that my chickens have virtually stopped laying, but most of them are molting.
