We started out with 10 hens (4 Barred Rocks, 5 Leghorns, and 1 Black Wyandotte) that were hatched late January/early Feb. of this year. For the past couple of months we are been getting 8-10 eggs/day. We went and bought 8 Production Reds a few weeks ago that were 6 months old that had starting laying a few weeks before we picked them up. We put them straight in with our original 10 since then we have only been getting around 7-9 eggs / day. When will the Production Reds start laying again and when will our original girls get back up to their peak again?
