    I have 8 hens. About 3 years old, I only receive about 4 eggs a day. Should be more right? Food layer mash and water on demand, plus free range daily, about 4 hours. Why? Or is that ok

    What breed are your hens? Are any molting? Also, they should be tapering off as they get older.

    Most chickens, especially egg-production birds, start laying less at three years.
