Can I reset my Hens lays schedule

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am trying to get all my hens laying on the same schedule again I have 7 various breeds and I am having to gather eggs all through the day. Any Suggestions?

They will lay when its right for them. I am not aware of any tricks to change that (there maybe, but i would be surprised and interested to learn of one).

Short answer...No.

 

Usually there's no need to gather all day long, I just grab them all when I close up the coop at night.

I do gather more frequently if it's freezing out or mucky from rain/snowmelt.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
