    How old are they? Are they molting? Do they free range?

    You're right, its common for them to slow down, or even stop, this time of year. Our weather here has been crazy, we got cold, and all of my birds stopped laying. Then we warmed up into the 60s and I was getting 5-6 eggs a day (from 15 hens). Then, we cooled off recently and have had a fair amount of rain, and I'm back to one egg a day :/

    Maybe yours are laying somewhere in your yard (if they free range) or they're just thrown off by weather or a molt. I'd give them some time to work it out.
