    First I don't usually have electric in my coop, but since it has been getting cold, to keep the water from freezing I put a heat lamp just over the water. Tonight I went out to fill the water and food and there was two eggs on the floor because I covered the nestboxes becauses they were just getting in there and pooing in them, so I'm thinking that they might start laying again because of the light so I put new straw in the boxes and opened them. I guess we'll see:rolleyes:

    Fourteen hours a day should get them going. I have 2 4' fixtures on a timer. You have the same day length as me. Mine come on at 3am and turn off at 5pm. I have eight hens, and I get 8 eggs/day still.
