    This week everything has thawed and the chickens have been outside all day the past week after being in the coop full time up until now. Since the start of the week we have had a big drop in eggs. Is it normal? My thought was it is a change in their routine but I have no idea. They haven't been laying outside because I checked.

    Changes in habitat, weather, feed and sunlight can all effect egg production.
