As mush as I dont want to do it I think I may add a light to my coop. I have 26 RIR hens and Im only getting 3 to 4 eggs a day. I know its cold and some of them just got done molting. But its been 2 months and nothing. I needed to change food because TSC no longer sells it. I dont know if its the weather, molting or changing the food that has them not laying. 10 of them hatched in April and they did not molt yet so why arent they laying? Thats 8 months. I dont know how to figure it out. They are RIRs and I picked them for their egg laying. I have a man that pays me $2.50 a dozen and I'm now finding I have to pay for feed because I have none to sell. So I guess my questions are, 1. Since they are not laying would it hurt to try a light for maybe a month and see that happens. 2. How long after they are done molting do they start laying again? Or does that depend on the breed?
