    Ok so i just finished building my coop about week ago and picked up 5 production reds that are about a year and a half old.. now i get out of them five hens a total of one egg every 2 to 3 days so i am trying to figure out if its just the heat which has been 100+ for a very long time. if so is there a breed that will keep laying in this heat with a large egg? i spent a good amount of money on the coop and feeders for them and to no be getting but one egg every few days is kinda crazy... lol

    Thanks,

    We have 3 golden comets, about 6 months old. We have had an egg every day, from each, except for a period of time when the heat index was 100+. They slowed down to 1-2 a day then. They are very consistent layers, huge eggs and very friendly girls.
