I have 3 layers: a white leghorn, a leghorn mix, and a buff orpington. They have all been pretty consistent layers until the past week or so now that the temperatures are dropping. Instead of my usual 3 eggs a day, I've been getting 2 eggs per day and it seems to alternate as to who is taking the day off. So, I expected that, which is fine. But I guess my question is will they probably continue to lay through the winter - just not as often, or is it likely that they will stop laying all together? The 2nd question is about the eggs themselves. We don't always collect the eggs every day, but what happens if the temp drops below freezing at night? Are the eggs still OK to eat?
