We only have six hens that are laying. Over the summer we were getting 6 eggs daily. When it started getting cold it went down to 2 eggs if any. Since thanksgiving we've been getting 7 eggs nearly every day. We did put straw ok n in coop for warmth and started feeding them more. We have also had some warmer days here and there. Not sure what the difference is. We also have 3 hens that were hatched in June. Not sure when they will start laying.
