I have what may be a stupid question.

Is there a certain temperature that chickens like to lay? I know they need 14 hours of sunlight. Is there any thing else?

I don't think there is a specific temperature so much as that the chicken be comfortable and healthy, which some cold hardy breeds can be down to extremely cold temperatures. We have a small, unheated, unlighted coop for our girls - nights have been in the 20s and terribly windy of late, too. Our BA just started laying last week and has been doing so like a machine the whole darn week - the temperature and weather don't seem to bother her a bit.
