    My hens were 6 in June. I've noticed that early spring is a time when there is the most egg-laying problems (no doubt because of the start-up process being somewhat difficult for some). Have any of you with older hens noticed that this is increased (the problems) for the older hens, or do they just simply quit laying? Thanks.
