    Hi I'm in NJ and am using a full-spectrum light in my coop. I have an assortment of year-old 35 chickens, NONE of which are prolific egg layers. Half of them are Ameraucanas. However I'm getting about a dozen eggs a day. Of this, only my Ameraucanas are not laying.

    I was wondering if this is happening with other folks Ameraucanas as well.....?

    My other breeds are laying decently for this time of year.

    I don't use lights so they lay according to the number of hours of sun and
    their hormones.

    That said, my Ameraucanas are not laying right now.
