I have 10 hens (assorted kinds) who will be 2 in the spring. They have been excellent layers but now are really slowing down. I had been getting 8-9 per day and am down to 2-3 on a good day in the past week or so. The weather has been gloomy, the days shorter, and I have been blaming that but now am beginning to wonder if they are just getting older and won't be laying as much. Last winter I put a light in the coop to extend the daylight hours and laying never slowed down a bit. Maybe it's time to put the light back up? Maybe they are just getting older and slowing down? When do they stop laying altogether?
