    I was just wondering if/when my chickens will start back laying again. I have 10 hens, about 1 year old. They were laying about 8-10 eggs per day last summer/fall and when winter hit they slowed down to about 4-5 eggs per day. Will they start to pick back up? If so, when about? THANK YOU

    Soon, as the days get longer they will pick back up. Adding light so they can get up a few hours early, eat, drink and Do Chicken things Does help---but some choose to not do that.

    It's all about the light. So you should be expecting it to pick up very soon.
