The days start getting longer after the winter solstice, which will be on December 22. The solstice is the shortest day of the year. After that, the days will get a little longer each day, signaling to the hens that spring, and warm weather, is on the way. It's got nothing to do with daylight savings, which is a human invention. It's all about shorter days versus longer days.
