    At night I don't offer extra light beyond this outdoor street lamp that's on our property. I understand the egg production drops with the shorter, colder days. Does the egg production come back say in the Spring, the start of warmer/longer days?[​IMG]

    Quote:Yep, should be going gangbusters again in the spring; though some breeds and some hens don't slow down all that much in winter.

    It does come back in spring... like gritsar said, for those of them who actually slow down in winter. [​IMG] I have sex links, which lay all through the year, rain or shine and however long the days are.
