My Magpie hen has missed laying 4 of the last 10 days. (I know Magpie can lay 220 eggs a year, so not sure if this is normal or likely due to fall etc. No molting in site). She has only been laying since Aug 13th, and this is my first hen to start laying. I am assuming (???) that the shortening days may be affecting her laying? They are still getting 12 hours of light. My question is, if we start supplementing the light in the duck house so they have 14-16 hours of light at this point, will it do any good? Or have we already set in motion thou shall not lay for the winter since the number of eggs has declined? Can providing light for 24 hours be detrimental as well?
