I've noticed that all my girls lay the day before a big storm (which happens occasionally at other times, but certainly isn't an every day occurrence). Additionally, the day or two after the storm aren't usually good egg production days. Is there any science behind this? I would hypothesize that the know the storm is coming and lay as a result, but I don't know.

I have noticed on the days the weather is worst, coldest/windiest/snowiest days I get the fewest eggs. I'm not sure if I get the most the day before, I will try and pay attention. I always suspect my low egg count those days was due to stress and time they spend indoors. The barometric pressure does change before storms, so it's possible they sense this and their laying pattern changes. You've got me wondering now.
