In the Brooder

Hi!!! We are new to chickens... We have had a flock of 22 hens & 2 roosters for the last 5 months or so & all we were getting was 1 or 2 eggs a day, every once in a while 3... We added 6 RIR in the last 2 weeks & the first day we got 6 eggs, now we are back to 1 egg a day... is it time to turn on the light, or add something more to the laying mash & cracked corn? They can all roam about during the day & they all go happily back into the coop at night...they also chase the barn cats away from all the scraps...any & all advice is welcome & appreciated! ty in advance!!
