    Yes, its normal for chickens to slow down or even stop laying in the cold winter months, some of this has to due with lack of light !!

    Do you have a light in your coop ?? Do they get 14 hours of light a day ?

    MERRY CHRISTMAS !!!!

    I have OEGB and they havent laid but 1 egg in the past couple of months. Its normal for them to slow down during the winter months, and even completly stop laying.
