I have 14 approximately 26 week old pullets some of which have been laying for about a month. Initially, I'd get an egg or two every other day. Then consistently 2 a day. Then, about two weeks ago, I was getting about 6 a day. One day I even got 8. But in the last week, I have been getting between 2 & 4 eggs a day. One pullet was laying eggs in the window box on the front of the hen house, but I took the window boxes down as the plants were all dead. Not to mention, dirt on eggs in no fun. My concern is are they laying the eggs outside the hen house? Or are they decreasing due to the shorter days? Or is something wrong with them? I have 2 barred rocks, 2 buff orpingtons, and the rest easter eggers. The most brown eggs I have gotten in one day is 3, so apparently one of the rocks or orps isn't laying yet.They free range most all day. They don't like the bucket nest boxes I made, but do lay in the dog crates in the floor as well as in two floor nests they made. I am not generally, supplementing their light. I have a light I turn on on cloudy or rainy days to encourage them to go into the house. Otherwise, they stand out in the rain. Any suggestions?
