Hi, I am not sure if this is where I am supposed to put this but... I have 2 seramas, a buff orpington and a crested polish. I brought them inside when winter temps started to really drop in november to around 20 f at night (the seramas were in by september at night) I took (this is pretty funny) a large dog kennel and a rabbit coop and put them so the doors faced each other and put an old bird cage on top of rabbit cage with a nesting box as the serama hen and her b/f really like to snuggle and sleep. They stopped laying in september and no one ever laid very often maybe a couple times a week. (serama hen born jan 08, other two mid march) Now that they are indoors I get 3 eggs like clock work every day. The lights are a) 100 watt and b) 40 watt. I turn on one or the other depending on whether they look tired. They eat all our food scraps along with their feed. Lights go on at 6:30 am and go off around 10:30 at night and I usually let them take a nap during the noon hour with no lights (there are small windows). Any idea which thing is getting them laying so regularly? I obviously wish to repeat it when I build their coop and hoped someone might have an idea. Oh and if anyone is interested in doing this, I am just putting a new layer of bedding down (cedar and pine mix) every week and one cage is raised on wire and one is down on ground level so they can decide what they want to walk on at the moment. They do not sit on the roosting bars either. We kept a few different pots of plants (mesclun mix, herbs that get too big, tomatoes) for greens as I do not always have fresh leftovers for them. So far we have had no smell issues. When people learn we have them down there when they visit they are always like wow, I can't smell them. The only problem I have sometimes is I use a stretchy exercise band to hold everything in place and the big chicken (orp) knows how to open it now from watching me and likes to lay HER eggs next to the furnace and sleep on them I think she thinks she is allowed to hatch them but our male is maybe 8 or 9 inches tall and she is close to 2 foot tall so I cant imagine he is accomplishing much with her lol. Or in the cloth diaper sink. Once in the toilet.
