I have seven EE hens, all from the hatch in Spring 09. From October, right through the winter, until ~ two weeks ago, they laid six/day religiously. For the last two weeks, I have harvested only three eggs each day; always the same, two pink and one green. Nothing has changed in their routine...same food, same feeding pattern, same forage area, same housing quarters, everything the same. The temperatures have gradually rose from the mid to upper 70's in the mid 80's during that time, but I have consequently increased their water intake. Any thoughts on this sudden drop in production?
