    Well, I guess I am just going to have to get down on my hands and knees and beg them to start laying eggs again. Not one single hen is laying. I might actually have to go to the store and buy eggs. I have 8 eggs left to my name. I though for sure this little warm up would give someone the idea to lay, but not a single one. [​IMG]

    Mine have started laying some more...do yours have access to lay in a different spot? mine have been known to lay in the barn instead of the coop sometimes as I have found 12 eggs in the barn when I dont get to many from the coop. and the days are starting to get longer so they should start back soon...

    Don't give up hope.....mine just recently started giving me more than a couple a week. At Thanksgiving I had to buy eggs so I'd have enough to make pumpkin pies.....didn't make me happy!!

    Yup...I had to buy eggs. :mad: Last year I had a light set up and I got eggs all winter...never got around to it this year and now they are on strike. Oh well, they are good girls and I guess they can have a little break.
