So, we live in the northwestern part of MT and have been experiencing a lot of below zero temps and snow. I have 40 hens, mixed ages, with the majority being 1,2, and 3 yrs old. They are free-range and get a great diet of produce scraps, scratch grain, layer feed and fresh water daily. Also, have access to a pan of grit. We get our feed from the local Hutterites in bulk and they've been getting it for years. I do keep artificial light on them for approx. 12-14 hrs. a day on a timer. They do not get any additional heat sources. The majority of them did molt towards the end of November and that's when egg production greatly slowed down. I don't think they really even left the coop in December due to the feet of snow on the ground, as well as the freezing temps. Since then I have noticed a couple hens still molting. But, since the end of November I have only been getting about 1 egg a day. On a good day I'll get 3 and their record day was 5. I have never had them ALL stop production like this for this long. Does anybody have any suggestions as to why? Or is this normal? I have a lot of egg customers in town that are getting awful antsy for their farm fresh eggs again, lol! Thanks for any and all input!
