I also have 4 hens and 1 rooster, I live in FL so I cannot tell you
anything about cold weather and chickens. My lay different too, I
may get 1 egg one day and 4 the next, and sometimes none for a couple
days. Mine also get fed veggie/fruit scraps and layer crumbles mixed
with scratch feed for the rooster. Mine are not free roaming as we
live in the country and they will get eaten. Also besides the layer
crumbles give them oyster shell , a small amount, to harden the
shells on their eggs, most feed stores carry this. This probably
doesnt help your situation, just letting you know what works for me.

> We have 4 chickens that are at least 1 yr old. We bought them last
October. All winter there were no eggs. Then warm weather came
around and 2 of them were laying eggs here and there. Then we had a
snow storm about a month ago, and since then we have had no eggs at
all. Also we use to let them roam the yard after the snow melted.
Then they were roaming into the neighbors yards and we do not let
them out any more. I don’t know if that is the reason or what but
they are not laying eggs. We feed them mixture of corn, wheat etc.,
and give them fruit & vegetable scraps. Any suggestions as to why
they are not laying eggs and what can we do to get eggs from them.
They have a winter place that is closed inn, but then there is a
small door that we opened so they can be in an open chicken fence
area which is about 8 x 12 yards, with a chicken fence roof as well.
