    In western Pa it has gotten cold at nights down to low 20s. Nice during days but drops at nite.
    Once it started to do this temperature swing I have noticed a significant drop in egg production.
    I closed up all the windows in my coop and preparing to heat it.
    Was wondering if there was an certain temp that was best for egg laying?
    thanks
