Haha... seems like just when they get rolling good and you wonder what the heck you're going to do with all these eggs suddenly they stop laying so hot. This will be our second fall/winter with our birds and they definitely slow down as photoperiod shortens. In summer we can expect 3-5 eggs/day, and winter 1-3. But unless broody or molting shouldn't have a real dramatic drop in production. Also could be any other change that disturbs their normal daily routine. As easy as chickens are they can be fussy about their habits.
