I have 11 layers. They've been laying regularly since last November. During the winter I would gety 8 to 11 eggs every day. Then this spring it changed to about 7-9 per day...and now I'm lucky if I get 6 a day... sometimes it's only 3 per day!! They get layer feed, 24/7 access to oyster shell and they free-range all day. I have noticed it seems that only the RIR's (6) are in the nesting boxes during the day (laying). I have 3 L Brahmas and 2 Black Giants... maybe they're just not big layers? Or is because they're free-ranging? Or could there be a clutch of eggs hidden someplace? Could someone help me solve the mystery? Or is this the right ratio? It's not that my DH and I really need more eggs, but our friends and family do!!
