    My girls are10 months old. For about the last month if I have gotten one egg a day I have been lucky. Is it something I am doing. I try to free range them when the weather is good. I give treats and they have great nesting boxes. This is my first group. I was hoping to get more at the poultry swap next month but if I am not doing it right now.....maybe shouldn't grow my group. Thanks...Joan

    I have 9 hens and I may get 1 or2 eggs every other day.I have spoke with several chicken keepers.and they are not getting any eggs at all.its just that time of the year.Mine stopped laying when they went through their molt.all hens slow down in the winter months.I took mine off of layer and give them Purina flock raiser.once they start laying I will start them back on layer.As long as they are healthy and you give them a good feed I would not worry.
