    hey all, just wanted to see what you thought about this, we have 15 hens, and received from them 14 eggs yesterday. now i know from what i've read, people are not suppose to get this many eggs from this number of hens. my question is with the way their laying now, will they begin to slack off toward spring?

    They'll only slack off due to cold weather, molt, illness or old age.

    I've gotten as many as 13 eggs from 13 hens, so its not uncommon.

    That is very normal from young layers. They must be happy!
