    For the past few weeks I was getting 1 or 2 eggs a day from my 7 hens. The last 3 days I am getting 6 a day! The extra light in the coop must be making them happy! (Me too)

    My 12 RIR's started laying in July. I've been getting 11 to 12 eggs everyday. About every 3 to 4 weeks I will only get 9 eggs.

    How long have you had supplemental light going? I just started mine a few days ago after a month of no eggs. They are molting tho...so i gave them a break....
