    My girls were laying like crazy in the Spring, but have stopped being so consistent since the heat rolled in. I also have a broody hen, so she is not laying at all. Is anyone else experiencing a slow down? Is there anything I can do to get them going again?

    Hmmm never really expericened that except in the winter.. but maybe they need more calcium?? I'm not really sure. I don't really have an explanation for it.

    Yes, I have a big slow down with my girls. I think it's the heat, plus, mine are going through a molt. Have you noticed any feather loss?
