Did you know that chickens are extremely sensitive to their environment? Heat, noise, change of routine all affect their egg production.
We left on our trip to Utah in the middle of June and the hens were laying 12 -13 eggs a day. When we returned home at the beginning of July they were laying about 6-7 eggs a day.
Just FYI 12-13 eggs a day is too many for the Rodgers family to consume regularly and 6-7 eggs a day is too few. I had to buy a couple dozen eggs last week, I wasn't very happy.
I have been told that as soon as the days cool down a little the egg production will go up again Yea! just in time for fall baking.
