    Is it normal for my hens to slow down laying in the summer?

    If you are having extremely warm weather, then yes, that would be normal.

    Make sure your chickens aren't trapped and have access to cool water at all hours. The coop should have lots of ventilation. It isn't uncommon for chickens to die from the heat.
