    I have 25 chickens.. they started laying a couple months ago and just before a couple weeks ago I was getting about 18-19 eggs a day and they were tan to rich brown in color but just recently I'm only getting 8-11 a day and they are white to tan colors.

    What's going on?

    Thank you!

    Cooler weather... less eggs for those in the north.. more for those of us in the south...

    And as they go through the laying cycle, the eggs will always get lighter.
