    Last summer when the girls first started laying they were inconsistent and only about 4 were laying, then over the winter they didn't lay at all, now that it's late winter turning into spring they have really picked up the pace! just over about the past month the other 2 birds have started laying, even the bantam polish. Over the past month we we have also gotten 2 double yolkers!

    The increasing daylength affects hormonal levels thereby increasing egg production.
