    I counted myself lucky that my 37 week old hens started laying in late Dec and all Jan, now Monday I got 6 eggs out of 14 and only 1 yesterday. I'm expecting them to be holding little signs when I go out there this morning. Guess this is normal or I was bragging too much about them!!!!!
    My 25 week old are still laying, 11 or them and 8 are laying:) Maybe, they can show the big girls how to start laying again!!!!!!
    Come on girl, lets get going!! [​IMG]

    Mine have oddly been laying throughout the winter w/ no extra light as well..
    This week Ive had 4 eggs out of 8 hens... even though 6 of them are new


    Maybe its the sudden cold snap?

    My 8 RIRs are slowly starting to improve. In December, I was getting 1 or 2 eggs per day. Now I'm up to 4 each day. I'm anxiously awaiting the day when I'll be back to 7 or 8 a day.
