I'm curious to know if anyone's getting any eggs during this transition to fall and cooler weather. We haven't had any fresh eggs for weeks.

I am getting 18-24 eggs from about 30 hens right now in the one pen and in others like my partridge cochins, I am only getting 5-7 eggs from 15 hens!

Are they getting enough light? mine are still laying, but as the winter rolls in, they will need artificial light to keep laying through the winter. I have mine set up on a timer but have not started using it yet.

I don't use artificial lighting and don't intend to. Not all my hens are laying yet, but the ones that are have slowed down this week.

yes, have 5 mo old nn and they have been laying approx. 4 eggs a day for the past 2 weeks. we have 20 hens. we have gotten 2 double yolk eggs. It has been below freezing here for the past couple of nights and we had snow this am. I know not all are laying yet, but don't know which ones. The eggs are about medium size (except for the double yolk eggs). The hens are babies yet and i expect the eggs to get larger in the spring. the production is increasing and we do not have a light in the coop. we had a tornado touch down about 12 miles away and the change in pressure frightened the hens, but did not slow down the egg production.

Our fifteen 23-week-old Buff Orpingtons started laying two weeks ago. We have three confirmed layers, and are getting three a day.

I have a timed light in the coop, because there aren't any windows, yet. They molted before they started laying.
