When is the best time to feed my chickens? I've been feeding in the evening around 7oclock. They stopped laying about 10 days ago. Was just wondering if this would have any effect. I broke my ankle and haven't been able to feed in morning. I have 1white leghorn and 2 rir. They are about 9 months old. Just wondering if not eating during the day would make them stop Laying. THANKS for any help, new to this..
