I have five pullets that have been laying since July however, two have ceased laying for the last two weeks. Plus one of my Comet's is continually laying thin shelled eggs that I am finding broken on the coop floor. My other Comet also seems to be taking to laying on the coop floor. Is this all a result of the shorter days? I'm wondering if the Comets are laying on the floor (I think from the roost) because it's dark when they lay (usually eggs already out there by 6:30 am) and can't find their nest boxes. My BSL is still going strong and lays later in the morning so I'm at least getting one good egg a day...but come on!!! I'm getting some oyster shells for them today but I don't have power in their small coop so I don't know what to do about adding light in the early morning. Any suggestions??????
