    Could someone advise why my Ladies may have slowed egg production? Possible factors: 1. cooler weather? 2. Not-so-great care by a neighbor while I was out of town for a week? (Not enough water or feed) 3. Not receiving typical attention while I was away? Thanks for any suggestions...

    If they are older hens (over 18 months) that might also factor in to all of the things you mentioned.
