    I hatched some chukar last June. If I put them under some artificial light & the right temperature should they start laying early? I read somewhere that they will.

    Would this shorten their normal laying season? Anything too detrimental to forcing them to start early?

    some birds do not care what kina lights you turn on that and it will take 2-3 weeks for birds to react to light most of the time I run 14-15 hours of light After the birds have started laying
