So u used to get 6-8 eggs a day from my 9 girls even when i added the first rooster! I now have 9 new additions that are 6 months old and get 1 egg a day sometimes 2! Any suggestions?

What exactly do you feed?
What are the measurements of your coop and run?
Have you ever dewormed your flock?

I'd guess stress of new additions and/or time of year for older birds to slow/stop production for molting and winter break. But more info would help.

How long have you had the new birds?
How old, in months, are your existing birds?
Do you free range?

What are the measurements of your coop and run?
Yes, dimensions and pics would help here.

Also.....
Where in this world are you located?
Climate, and time of year, is almost always a factor.
Please add your general geographical location to your profile.
It's easy to do, and then it's always there!

I incubated twice so added new birds 2 times! Also gave my daughter 4 because i had 4 roosters. Gave 2 other roosters away so there has been lots of changes! They free range all day so they have plenty of room & my coop is 10x10 and the run is 10x30! My young ones are now 6 months old & no more changes! 18 chickens & not many eggs! I feed them good & they are great pets!
