The stress of something new can cause them to halt laying. Is your coop big enough not to be heated up by the lamp and is the light directed away from where they roost? Sudden heat or light also can be stressful so make sure your coop is ventilated enough and the light is somewhat blocked.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Thank you ! I have blocked off the heat lamp lights and we will see if that works
