Chickens and eggs...

Recommended Posts

Is anyone else having low egg production with their chickens lately (the past month or so)? I don't know if it's the heat or what, but we haven't had many eggs lately.

 

Warmly,
Dianna

I do not have chickens but use a veggy co-op from Aiken, SC.  They have been having an issue with their chickens laying a lot less eggs than usual and said it was due to the heat.

Oh, thank you! I feel better now! We've had these chickens a while (my daughter's 4-H project), and they've been healthy, happy, and good producers up until now (with the exception of when it was very cold this winter... they went on strike  ;) ). They didn't have low production last summer, so we couldn't figure out what was going on this summer. But it makes sense - the sustained hot weather is just too much for them. They've been getting a little better the past week, but nowhere near enough to fill my daughter's egg orders.

 

Thanks Emily!
