Our Flock of three has started laying eggs and it is wonderful. We currently have a light on a timer providing several hours of morning and evening light. Q 1 Does egglaying during cold winter days take energy that would otherwise help them warm themselves? Q 2 If we taper back on lights now and egg production slows. Will the total amount of eggs they lay over their lifetime diminish? Q3 Again if light is tapered back can that force a molt in 7 month old hens. Subjecting them to the cold more? Thankyou.
