My dh and I have been racking our brain to what we have been doing wrong. During the summer we were getting about 2 to 3 dz eggs a day. Added 18 more laying hens and now they are laying but the others are not. So we went from 2 to 3 dz to a dz a day. We give them cracked corn; laying crumbles; and oyster shell. Had to go to the farm supply today and asked the owner and an old family friend what could be the problem and he said just like the seasons the chicken's laying eggs changes. So now I feel a little silly.
