    You can try increasing their protein a bit; which should help recovery, but you may find yourself waiting til Spring.

    Increase their protein, make sure they have enough day light, if not, then install a lamp in the coop. Put a little bit of Apple Cider Vinegar in their water, it perks them up, deworms them, and is a natural probiotic.

    Egg laying usually starts to pick up right after winter begins. It doesn't have to wait until spring. You will hopefully see a difference soon.
