    Hey Guys....I know this can be a touchy subject for and against.....but hears goes anyway....

    If I put a light in my coop and have it turning on at 4AM to keep egg production up....how long will it take them to get back into a cycle where they are laying again?


    does it take a few weeks for them to get kinda back into a regular laying again.


    Thanks!
