I have a mixed flock of 8 hens that are a year old (6 BO' and 2 RIR's) and
6 SLW's from this spring (March 5). The SLW's started laying at 3.5 months,
much earlier than my older hens, and they are outlaying the
older hens 2:1. The older hens lay bigger eggs, but the younger hens lay
way more eggs. Anyone else experience this?

Sounds typical to me.

I'm just trying to work my way through this heat (hens have almost completely quit laying).... it's about to kill us this year.
