Can I make them lay their eggs earlier in the day?

    My hens like to lay their eggs after I leave for work - which isn't a problem right now, because its nice weather... But, in the winter, I'd feel better about collecting them before they become eggsicles, or is it ok if they freeze? I have 1 that will lay before I leave, the rest insist on making me wait.
