No light, no heat, 3 hens, 3 eggs a day! What gives??

Discussion in 'Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying' started by All about the EGG, Jan 21, 2010.

  1. last winter I had a light, and got the eggs I needed. I figured this year I would give the girls a break. Nope, they must really like me.

    [​IMG] Are they free-ranged? Ours are and still lay through the winter, although they give us much less than the summertime quota.

    What breed are they? A lot of it has to do with what breed they are.

    You've got good chicken karma! Keep up whatever you're doing...I'm thrilled to have half laying again.

    We just started with chickens this summer. I've found we are getting more eggs in the winter then we did in the summer. I think ours like the cooler temps. I guess when it stays around 100 degrees they give up on egg laying.
