WELL , we figured out what was 2 of the problems why the hens were not laying . 1. One of the roosters were running them OUT of the coop preventing them from laying . 2. LESS daylight hours We took rooster out of the main run and coop and put him in a run by himself . and added 2 lights in the coop and 1 in the run of the main coop/run. they had dropped to laying 2 eggs a day , and NOW they already up to 6 in the main coop. They better get BUSY and lay . WE have around 100 head and 70 - 80 are all laying age . to me 6 - 7 months they should be DROPPING EGGS BIG TIME. NOT bad for 1 night with lights ON ... excited to see what tomorrow will bring .
