I bought three 8 month old pullets, one 2 yo hen, and one hen I don't know the age of (she was the mother hen to 5 chicks that I purchased, and she came free with them). At most this summer I got 4 eggs a day, but that was very inconsistent. I am now getting 1 or 2 eggs a day, sometimes 3. I just started getting eggs from the chicks (3 small eggs in 4 days, and there are 5 chicks, one of which might be a roo). Anyway, this seems like pretty low production. I live in Montana and our days are getting shorter, but they still have daylight from 7 am to 8 pm, or so. They don't act sick, are free ranging. The three pullets I got (I guess they're not pullets anymore!) did have feathers missing form their backs (actually, pretty good sized bare spots), from what I thought was pecking during the transport here. It has not gotten any better, and hasn't gotten any worse. I do have a rooster, but he doesn't seem to bother them much. We are going into winter and wondering what to do about it, and/or if there is something underlying we're missing. Oh, and I have 4 BOs, one white hen who lays brown eggs but I'm not sure her breed, and the chicks are misc. x-breeds.
