Our flock is laying a average of 24 eggs plus the past few weeks now we are only getting half , they are young only 6 mos old. Is this normal, we did have extreme hotter weather but they had a fan and plenty of water. Our hens have only been laying for about a month or so. They do free range and we give them no chemicals at all. Does there egg laying fluctuate. Oh yes we have white leghorns and red sex link hens.
