My chickens have also quit laying, and after reading many postings I guess it is the lack of light. Question, If I provide the light now, will they resume laying, or am I wasting my time? Next, can anyone advise me on the proper amount and type(ie protein% and any other relavent #s) of feed to use for 29 hens and 1 rooster. They are all this years(april)chicks? I do not know if I am feeding enough or not. Also, will they consume hay? I put some out in the lot occasionally just for them to scratch in, but I don't know if they are eating or playing. Thanks allot! this forum is great.
