Hey there, I normally have a light on a timer for my coops that gives them a total of 13-14 hours of light, when combined with natural daylight. Due to having surgery this summer, and alot of complications from the post surgery meds, I haven't been out taking care of the chickens, like I normally do. My daughters and husband have. They have been doing a great job, but of course, just doing what needs to be done, not really observing and seeing if anything is "off". Anyway, I have noticed that the egg production had slowed down, and my some of my hens are going into a molt. I also noticed the other day that their lights weren't turning on. The extension cord was damaged. Not sure how long ago this happened. I do know that I have never had my hens go through this big of a molt before. Probably because they normally had the 13 - 14 hours of light, maybe that tamed the molt down a little? I don't know. My question is, with my hens going through a molt, is it going to cause any problems if I went ahead and set their lights back up to go on so that they get the 13 - 14 hours of light again? Since I normally keep a light for them, I really don't want them to get used to not having a light. And since I sell the eggs, I don't want egg production to drastically slow down, or cease, during winter. I would say they are getting about 9 - 10 hourse of natural daylight right now, and it is only going to get shorter. Thanks for any advice!
