Hi there. I have five hens in my coop/run. They will be 1 yr in April. They were laying pretty consistently for a good long while but now that the weather is really cold here in Michigan and the days are shorter I am only getting about one egg a day and sometimes no egg. I am wondering how normal this is. I am having to buy store bought eggs and am not happy about it. I thought maybe it was because it was to cold, so we put a heat lamp in the hen house (also because their water was freezing in the hen house). So the temp in there now is about 40-50 in the day and 35-45 at night. The water no longer freezes and the coop is much warmer than before. Is there more I can do to help them produce more eggs or is this just how winter is? Thanks. Jessica PS. I have one buff orpington, two silver laced wyandottes, an easter egger and a mutt chicken (not sure what it is, some kind of mix).
