My hens haven't laid eggs in about 2 1/2 months what do I need to do or what can I do?
The pros give the chickens 17 hours of light. Give them a light bulb on a timer and they will start laying in about 2 weeks.
What are you feeding them, how much water are they drinking, how much treats are you feeding?
Yes, more information. What age? What breed/s?
Probably normal for the dead of winter.
IMO 17 hours of light is too much. 14 is plenty and even 12 is sufficient. I slowly increased to 11 at the winter solstice and they all started laying again.
Yes 12-14 is how much light they should have. Also is their water constantly frozen that could be a factor also are they free from deceases
