I've put a light in our chicken house and a timer switches it on at 06:00 till 08:00 and again 17:45 till 21:00. My hens now gets an extra small feed in the evening and don't seem to mind the extra light hours. And I'm now getting up to 30 eggs a day. Before the light I got 5-7. I've told a fellow free range farmer about this as they are also struggling to meet demand for their eggs, but his wife said it's bad for the hens. They can't do that. What do you guys think? All opinions welcome. P.S. Ever tried typing with a chicken sitting on each arm? Getting a good workout here!
