Hi Gang, I'm so excited to have joined BYC and love all the pics! This is my first post on any thread online, so please be patient. About a month ago hubby and I bought 52 leghorns and settled them in for the winter in an insulated building with a heat lamp. For the first couple of weeks, I gathered anywhere from 32 to 45 eggs daily. But over the past 2 weeks, production has reduced down to only 2 to 4 eggs daily. I don't think the ladies are eating them. But not sure. The hatchery told us they don't need oyster shell and I'm wondering if having none available to them is the problem. Has anyone else had this challenge?
