    When can I expect my hens egg production to start slowing down as we head into shorter days and colder months?

    My girls have now slowed down they are just at the end of their molt
    it gets dark around 5pm and eggs are down to less than half I would say I average 4 a day out of 18 hens but sometimes every other day somedays I get 1 or 2
    before the molt I got 8 or 9 most days in the summer months x
