    same here, and 2 neighbors also, I think its the wacky weather! We put a light in the chicken house with a timer to give them more daylight by a few hours, and today got 8 eggs, out of about 25 hens, so better than none!!!! or 1!
    also DH was giving them a lot of corn, along with the layer mash, so I went and got some scratch grain that we used to give them for treats, instead of straight corn. they still get most of their nutrition from the layer mash.
    I thought about hanging some nice curtians in there for them, or maybe some chicken wallpaper I got.... to cheer them up!!!
