My hens have not been producing much lately. Egg production can go down in winter, and I think that may be what is going on, but it’s really down. I’ve kept track of the eggs we receive from them since we first started getting eggs. Last December (2014) we got 195 eggs, this December we got 170. We have more hens this year than last year – last year we had 9 at this time, and right now we have 15. I know one hen for sure isn’t laying, our “escape artist” hen – she lays white eggs, and is the only one that does. She’s one of our newer hens from this year. We have not gotten a white egg in at least 3 weeks. The chickens all seem healthy, and I have a heat lamp on them, but maybe the heat lamp isn’t enough to keep them producing with the cold. We’re down by 70 eggs from November – In November we got 239. Our temperatures are down from November, but not as cold as last winter, luckily. We’ve only gotten down into the teens at the coldest, maybe 17 degrees Fahrenheit. I think last year I may have had a white heat lamp in the coop, this year it’s red. Either way, it’s kind of depressing. I’ll just keep an eye on them, I guess, and hope for spring.
