    Since the time changed we have been getting 1-2 eggs a day from 6 layers. Last night we changed the timer on the lights and today we got 4! FOUR!!! I am relieved.

    Mine are off the srike as well, the weather warmed up a little and I'm now getting 2 a day instead of the 1 every other day from 7 girls. Better than nothing! I don't think they were ready for the cold so quick!

    debiraymond, what are your timer settings (on / off) and what kind of light are you using?
