    We live in Central Florida. I do know that the weather in winter months affect egg laying, but what about summer months? We have gotten HOT and skipped spring. My girls did pick up egg laying when things started to warm up, but have slowed some. Could it be the heat? The pass couple of days it has been 98-101 at our place. They are saying today is suppose to be 99, but feel like 106 out. Our girls were 2 years in March. They are in the shade, and have plenty of clean water. Thanks in advance

    It can. We have temperatures around 98-100 degrees and our birds lay fine. I guess it depends on how hot it gets, if they have ways to cool off, and how heat tolerant the breed of chickens you have are. Good luck! [​IMG]
