Quote:My experience is that the hotter it gets the fewer eggs I get. And Nicola is right about the corn- I only give scratch grains as a treat in the winter.

Good luck- I have been letting mine free range, so they can find cool spots- and they're laying eggs all over the place. Easter egg hunt every day!

Mine are laying just fine in 95 degree weather, but I bet when we hit our days of a 100 plus they'll give it up for awhile.
