Heading into winter I had 3 SLW pullets on the brink of laying...I also had 3 RIR pullets from a May hatch that had to be getting close. My lack of patience has got the better of me, and with 10 hens in the coop one egg a day just wasn't cutting it! I added a twin tube 4' flourescent shop light to my coop. How long after doing so do you think I can expect eggs since many of the birds have never laid before? The birds get natural daylight until about 4:00 when the sun starts to head behind the garage. I turn the light on at 4:00 and leave it on until about 9:00 or 9:30. I figure it's probably about 10am when the sun hits the coop window, so that is around 11 hours of light. Not excessive I think, but should be enough to spur laying right? They have access to the run daily, but so far they don't seem to want to play in the snow!..so it has been a little cramped, but I still have enough space that it should not stop them from laying. So...how long after putting the girls under a light should I expect to see the results? Thanks!
