    My friend has about 7 RIR hens and she is only getting 2 eggs a day. Nothing in their coop or surrounding area has changed, they appear healthy. Any ideas as to what might be causing such low egg production.
    She is thinking of getting them all butchered if they don't start to lay soon.

    How old are they?
    Do they have enough light?
    Has their diet changed or have they been moved?
    Are they moulting?
