Well, a week ago my little Silkie cockeral started to crow I was having my coop light turning on at 4:30AM everyday since forever. Of course no one wants to be woken up at 4:30 by a crowing roo, at least not around here. So I shut off the light. They only have the natural light now. My RIR/Orp's are my daily layers, around 5AM they lay faithfully in the box......well not anymore! I find them on the floor and this AM it appears that one layed an egg while roosting, which broke the egg and they all ate it Will they adjust their laying time? I am assuming that it is dark when they lay which is why they aren't getting to the boxes?? Has anyone had a simular problem or any advice? I will not give up my little man, no way no how!!
