    I wanted to thank all of you that replied to my earlier message for help with lighting....

    I shut the white light off and left the chicken coop door open but left the heat light on and I got three eggs yesterday!!!

    Of course one hen still laid her egg in the hay wagon... guess you can't have everything....

    Thanks again!!

    i noticed the same thing. I use a red heat lamp over the water when it gets in the 20's and below, on the days when its been on there are 3-4 eggs and when its not theres 1 or 2. And I have one who just loves to lay back in the corner of the shed, I just cant break her of it.
