My flock will be 1 year old this winter. I am contemplating adding light to my coop this winter to keep the chickens laying. I am in FLORIDA and my summers are so hot that a majority of my birds QUIT laying during the summer. At that time, I had 9 hens and was collecting around 3 - 4 eggs a day. So, I feel that half of my girls got a break from the stresses of laying during the summer. Then they molted. Seriously, do they need another break during the winter ? ? ? SO - - here's the questions - - - How many chickens (of laying age) do you have? Do you light your coop during the winter ? ? ? If you DO LIGHT the coop, what schedule / timing do you find that works best ? ? THANKS BYC for the very valuable information!
