I've learned a lot from this site, and I know in the winter time a lot of hens decrease or stop entirely of their egg laying skills. I thought maybe because it was just too cold to lay an egg? But I live in Hawaii... Is it to do with the daylight hours and not the cold as I was thinking? Thanks in advance. My Chickpea is an awesome little layer, she laid her first egg the day after my birthday (go figure ) on August 26 and had laid me an egg a day up until a few weeks ago. She lad two in one day and then threw in the towel. She is bright eyed and as a chicken should be. So I'm not worried about her in anyway. Just confused.
