mine are doing the same thing i was getting a dozen eggs a day and the past 2 weeks im only getting half a dozen a day i think the shorter days has them thrown off . i put a light with a timer comes on 4am and off at sunrise its been a week and still not back to laying capacity.
Thank You Both For The Respond. I Didn't Realize That They Would Be Thrown Off So Much By The Time Since It Changes Just A Little Everyday. But The Light On A Timer Sounds Like A Great Idea. Let Me Know If U Think It Gets Them Back On Track Please?
Mine have finished a month-long slow moult and are beautifully feathered for winter. I adjusted my timer yesterday to come on from 5 am - 8 am, and the birds were singing and laying when I came down today. Just be sure they've had time to get some feathercoat, and give them things like suet or flock block to keep them warm and to add a gloss to their new plumage!
