Re: My chickens aren't laying...
I have a light in my coop. It is a red heat light that you would use to bood chicks too. It is hooked to the top of the shed ceiling and we have it on from 6am till 7pm. I run an extension cord from my garage also it is weather proof. We have nine hens and get 5 to 8 eggs a day but usually 6 or 7. One of our game birds is nesting and is not laying andour other game bird is not laying much at all so our other full size hens lay almost everyday all seven of them.
