Hi all, I live in the Pacific NW where we have very long winters full of lots of rain and very dark grey skies. My new flock will be starting to lay around late August but our winter will probably be starting around October. I know chickens need down time to allow their body to rest after laying eggs but does anyone have a recommendation as to how much down time? I'd like to put my ladies under lights for part of the winter since it stays pretty dark and grey from October-April.That's a good part of the year. Any other Pacific NW chicken owners have any insight as to what they do? Thanks for your advice!
