    They need 14 hours of light a day to lay good, you can add a few hours in the morning or night !! My coop light comes on at 6am and goes off at 8pm. So I add a few hours morning and night !!
    Just dont light the coop 24/7 it can cause cranky chickens since they do need dark !! Good luck and I hope they start laying good again for you !!
