I went from regularly getting about 12 eggs a day to getting 1 to 3! Refuse to buy eggs at the store because that's why I have chickens. Shortage of eggs is taking a toll on the family. I have read all the threads regarding decreased egg production, etc. Still frustrated. I went out yesterday to the coop and called a department meeting. I explained to my girls that this slacking off was not going to be tolerated and we needed to step up production! Explained that if production didn't improve, pink slips were going out. I have done everything I can to improve their working conditions and make it condusive for good production and it is going to take everyone working together as a team to get back on track! I think they really listened. I could see their excitement about taking it up a notch. I expect to find several eggs when I arrive home this evening.
