    I have 31 laying birds they are all 7 months old but only 25 of them have been laying and it has been like this for a couple of weeks now. Do you think that they just don't have enough sunlight or what? Thanks in advance.

    For this time of year, that is great production. The daylength is increasing and egg production will follow suit.

    Egg production is directly related to daylight. This time of year, egg production naturally dips. I only ge about 4 per day from a total of 39 hens.
