Does egg production drop off during hot weather? I seem to be getting less eggs lately.

I think some of the heavier breeds slack off when its hot. Is it possible you have an egg theif- chicken or otherwise? Snakes are stealthy enough to sneak in and out without being detected.....

My girls slow way down. Only my leghorn and polish keep laying through the hot summer and they are sporadic at that.

I have 10 adult hens. 1 is broody, due to hatch today and tomorrow, so I should be getting 9 eggs. But I've been averaging 5-6. Then spotted a chipmunk in my yard today. Little egg thief.


Edited because my brain and fingers don't match.
