I hear that laying usually slows down significantly in the winter months due to lack of sunlight. I was thinking of adding some sort of lighting system on a timer to extend the hours of "daylight" for my chickens. Just wondering if anyone is doing this and if you recommend a specific type of light bulb to use. I have their old heat lamp from when they were chicks.. Would this be ok to use? Any tips would be awesome.. Oh and they are not laying yet (22 wks), but this is in hope that they start to soon!
