    OK, seems a majority of my ladies seem to have gone on strike, egg laying wise [​IMG]

    I have 5 1 year olds this month and I'm averaging 2 eggs a day. That's down from 4 a day up until summer started.

    They aren't hiding eggs anywhere else.

    Do they slow way down in the summer??[​IMG]
