    I read that if we add light in the chicken coop during fall/winter season , chickens would lay more or longer . Is this true ?

    Yup. The chickens will lay better if they have light for 12-14 hours per day like they do in the summer months.

    all my hens lay during the daytime now , does that mean they would be laying at night as well ? I have about 35 PLUS that " SHOULD " begin laying probably next week . LIKE YIKES .
