    Why do you believe they are not getting enough sleep? Most likely your chickens have stopped laying because of the season. During the winter months chickens see less light, less light signals to chickens to decrease their laying. Every bird is different, some continue to lay regardless of season, some just lay sporadically, many quit laying completely until March.
    That said increased stress will also cause them to quit laying, why do you think they are not sleeping?
