I just got four hens, 2 leghorn and 2 Rhode Island Reds 3 days ago. I bought them from someone local and I also got their coop and yard fence. I am told they were hatched in March. I haven't had chickens since I was a small child so everything I know about keeping chickens has been learned by reading this site and watching youtube videos. Since Saturday, I have not gotten any eggs. I just found out they didn't haven't given any eggs since Thursday. With the daylight shortened this time of year, are they done until Spring? The only reason I am disappointed by this is because I have a 4 year old and a 6 year old and they want to find an egg! If they may be done laying already, can I reverse that by adding a light with a daylight bulb in their coop for a few extra hours every evening, or is too late and we just have to wait until Spring? Speaking of which, when can I expect them to start again in the Spring? Thanks for helping a newbie!
