I have four hens -- 2 buff orpington, 1 golden wyandotte and a brahma. They are 27 weeks old and have not started laying eggs. I've been told it might be because of the shorter days and decreased light. I'm in MA. I really don't want to wait until spring for more daylight to start getting eggs (after the expense of buying coop and building a chicken run, my husband wants those chickens to become productive members of the family!). It's been suggested that I should add a light. Do I put it in the coop or keep it in the run. There is not a lot of space in the coop (planning on building a bigger one). Any suggestions on type of light? And finally what hours do I put the light on? They tend to go in the coop around 4:30-5:00. Not sure what time they come out.
