    I had a question...I have 10 hens; 2 that are 8 months old who were laying 1 a day. Then I have 3 that are 6 months old and 5 who are 4.5 months old. As of now I have received no eggs!!! My older girls haven't laid since October! Whyyyyyy?? They can't be still molting? Can they? Advice people please!!

    Probably the time of year. Temperature changes, daylight changes, and stress can all affect egg production. I have 26 hens right now and am getting about 5 eggs a day. As long as they are acting normal than I wouldn't worry.

    Yes they're all normal and seem happy! I do not provide a light for then either...so I figured that wasn't helping. Just wanted to make sure it was at least normal! Thanks :)
