    Hi there! I have 7 hens and 1 rooster. my hens (sex links) are about 8-9 months old now.. I am only getting between 0-2 eggs a day. Any ideas why? They have plenty of food and fresh water, insulated coop, lots of space/free range. I have a good friend who has nine hens and consistently gets 9 eggs a day.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Could they be hiding them on you? Do you have rodents or snakes in the coop? Are you adding supplemental light? Could one of your birds be an egg eater?
