How many people have been getting less eggs in the past few weeks?
I just started getting fewer eggs this past week. Don't know why though.
I have. They all seem fine though.
Mine are just the opposite. Laying more eggs then I can keep up with.

I was getting zero eggs out of over 40 girls weeks ago, but, I'm getting super production now. thanks to a bobcat going bye-bye.
I have been getting fewer eggs also. My flock seem fine. But I do have some chickens that apparently isn't eating enough oystershell for they because once in a while i find a softshelled egg in nesting box and if I don't get it out before another hen goes in to lay an egg and breaks the egg then they end up eating it. That seems like why somedays I have less eggs.
I'm getting more eggs than I ever have, but I started my birds on Ultimate Vitamins from Foy's Pigeon's and they are laying great now.
My gals were slow, but with the recent weather warmup here in Southeast Michigan, they really kicked production into gear. It has cooled off & is raining right now & is supposed to be in the 30's through the weekend. Hoping they don't get confused & slow down again.
Mine too have been laying less than during the cold weather of winter. I just broke 2 broodies this past weekend & am hoping that they get back into the groove of laying soon. On Friday I only got 1 egg...
I thought once spring & warmer weather came, that they would start laying like crazy but its been just the opposite. Very odd.....
