    my buff Orpington, Delaware & R.I Red haven't laid an egg in about 10 days. Yes its getting cooler, yes its getting dark earlier but I woudn't think that they would stop this early. They are about 2 1/2 years old. Is that contributing to them not laying as well? Ant ideas

    Our production suddenly dropped last week. I found that one (or both) of my Easter Eggers were laying in the bushes in the backyard. They're "grounded" until I see some eggs in the nest box now. Got one today!!
