Hi Everyone, I have another beginner question. I have Rhode Island Reds, 7 of them. I understand that in the winter they lay fewer eggs than in the summer, but I have a light in the coop so that they get 14-15 hours of light every day. Over the last three months, I've noticed that some days I get two eggs, some days I get six eggs, some days I get zero eggs, and so on. I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong to lead to such inconsistent egg-laying rates - my understanding is that RRRs are supposed to be pretty consistently good layers. I fee them organic layer pellets, 17% protein (Morrison's, made in VT where I live). They have clean water, grit, and they get a little scratch tossed on the straw under the roost to get them to mix the poop into the straw. They were hatched on June 12 2007, so they're a little under two years old. Any help would be much appreciated.
