No eggs since Daylight Savings! Our local cooperative suggests using artifical light in the coop via a timer to turn on the light early in the am. Anyone else experiencing this sudden change from laying to NO laying and switched to artifical light? All you chickens pros out there please share your chicken experiences! Should I use artifical light or not? Should we give the girls a break during the winter? Are we expecting to much to have eggs year round?? They also experience loose stools. I provided some yogurt and seems to have cleared it up. Weather here on the DELVARMA has been rainy and cooler. Last two days are much sunny and warmer. My five black sex links are 28-30 weeks old! We also have a Miniature horse - 18 months old - she came down with pneumia. Vet cam out and she is improving. Vet does not seem to know much about chickens. Just wondering if the rain is affecting the chickens just like the horse. I'm stalling that baby horse next heavy rain. Too bad if she hates being stalled. Thanks for your input!
