    [​IMG] I was shocked to find 2 eggs this morning!!!! I got 4 baby chicks in March which did not lay this fall...Today, December 20th, I heard loud noise went to the coop and found the eggs!!!!Really???? The only thing I did different was add a red heat lamp a week ago? Can someone shed some light on this for us? Merry Christmas to me!!!!

    Shed some light? you ask? Pun intended. [​IMG]

    The heat lamp provided extra light as well. Quite likely the extra light gave them to "go ahead and lay" signal.
