My egg count has been dropping steadily. For several months I averaged 11 eggs daily. One day a week the count would drop to like 8. About a month ago now the daily count dropped to nine, now it's six. Yesterday was the very first time that I didn't go out and let them out of the coop as soon as I got up. It was raining so hard that I left them in the coop until after 2 PM. My egg count climbed back up to nine. I've been insistent that they are laying eggs somewhere other than the coop. My SO says no. He says I can't expect them to keep laying eggs like gangbusters and that the egg count is bound to go down sometimes. I have searched this farm over, checked all their favorite hangouts and can't find any hidden eggs, but I still believe they are hiding them somewhere. What say you?
