In the Brooder
- Aug 22, 2021
My 4 Rhode Island Reds are 16 weeks and two just started laying. It's the end of august and the days are shortening. I am a new chicken keeper and from what I read, chickens will lessen their egg production or molt in the fall/winter. Can anyone tell me what I might expect for my flock? Should I give them more light artificially? Is there a minimum amount of light they need to keep laying through the winter? OR should I just let nature take its course?
