How much is the normal drop in egg production? I have 8 pullets (7 RIR Mixes, and a Brahma). We were getting between 6 and 7 eggs a day. Now we are only getting 1! A huge drop off and all of a sudden. At first I wondered if the eggs were being eaten, but there has been no evidence of shells or yolks in the boxes or the coop. And I have started checking for eggs more often just to be sure. What is normal? It seems like such a steep decline, but this is my first winter with chickens. I knew to expect some decline. Just was thinking it would cut in half... not all the way off. Assuming that we cannot add a lamp to the coop because of the distance from the house, are there any suggestions as to how we can stimuate production, or should we just let nature take its course and ration our eggs until spring?? I would hate to have to buy eggs from the STORE!! Thanks.
