Something else likely the cause and effect.

2x Aart 24/7 lights makes your backyard chicken similar to battery chicken(grocery store eggs)

Well aart tried it in four different coops all had the same result. A local farmer told me the trick and I only left them on for the first twenty four hours after that I shut them back off. It worked I changed nothing else. I'm going to add lighting to the coops and put them on a timer two hours before sunrise and two hours after sunset and see if that works if it does not then I will just wait till spring for them to start laying again. Thanks everyone for your help but I'm convinced that it's just a season change issue.
