    I have 7 hens. Three of them are 3 yrs old, the other four are 2 1/2 years old. I am only getting one egg every other day. They are done with their fall molt. It is December. I live in Florida. Shouldn't I be getting a few more eggs?

    The days are still getting shorter so you may not get a lot more till the days finally get longer so the chickens are up and around more. My production is also way down but don't have much hope for mine to pick up much before longer days arrive.
