I am the new owner of 9 month old hens (buff orpington, black orpington, 2 NH Reds). We just finished building an enclosed run and now I want to see some eggs! Based on some things I saw here, I installed a 6-foot rope light inside the coop and have it set to go on pre-dawn to add about 4 hours of light to the day. How long before I should expect to see some results? The coop doesn't have any good nesting spots installed, so my job for tomorrow is to figure out a place I can install one. The previous owner did say they were laying eggs through the summer. Thanks for your help!
