    My 4 chickens, 3 Buffs and 1 Austrolorp have been horrible in the egg laying department all summer. They are about 18 months old, layed great all winter and spring then stopped. They have 24 hr access to food and water, free range a couple times per week and still lay only 1ish egg a day between them. What am I doing wrong???[​IMG]

    Heavy breeds don't like summer. They lay better in winter and spring usually. Just wait for fall to come and their laying should improve.
