    Hi All
    I also noticed decreased egg production-- thought it was due to the heat. After looking over this site I will be treating for worms as a precaution. They have never been treated so I hope it helps. Of the 3-4 eggs a day I am getting (10 gals in residence), the whites seem to be watery. Any thoughts????

    I'm not a pro but if it's really hot maybe you should wait a while. Heat is a stress-er for sure. [​IMG]

    Heat can definitely effect the appearance of the egg... [​IMG]
