Hi, This is my first post, so please try to be nice. Before, I was getting 1 maybe 2 eggs a day. This is from 13 hens!! Then, after searching this site for various solutions, I read somewhere that they might not be getting enough light. This was the answer!! Chickens need 14-15 hours of light ( I think ) and when the light goes in through their eyes, it reaches a gland in the back of their neck. This spurs their egg production. About 4 days later, 3 eggs appeared in their nest. This gradually wen't up to 6. We then noticed 5 eggs outside. We decided to trim the nettles down and we discovered 2 more nests with a combined 25 eggs!! Now we are up to 11 eggs a day and we just bought 4 lohman hens So really, Make sure their is sufficent light out with the chickens and always check outside for eggs!! Forgot to mention, on the light note, If you put a news paper level with the chickens eye level and you can read it then you have enough light but if you can't read it then there is insufficient light.
