My chickens haven't been laying eggs for a couple of months now. Some were molting so I knew they wouldn't lay while molting. Then we recently put the heat lamp outside because it's been so cold and my one banty started laying occasionally. I cleaned out their coop 3 days ago and there was nothing in there. Today when I went to clean it out again, there were.....11 eggs! ELEVEN!!!! Even my easter eggers have started laying again!
