I added artificial light 2 weeks ago bc my chickens stopped laying, all except for 1 dominique who's continued to lay regardless. They have 14 hours of light. My only wonder is that even though I'm keeping the light on until 9pm, they're sleeping at dusk with the light on. so they're still thinking it is night even though they have the light. Is that the reason why they're not laying? Do I need to put the light on at 2am or something and just start the days earlier? I mean, dusk is soon going to be 430 in the afternoon.
