    Where do you live? Daylight is a big factor. Are they molting?

    How many birds do you have? How old? How many hours of daylight are you getting? Do they appear otherwise healthy?

    I have about 20 to 30 birds in a really big coop
    Enough for 40 birds at least

    What are the diminsions of your coop? There are less hours of daylight in the winter, hens need 12-14 hours of sunlight every day to lay.
