I have 7 hens they were laying every day they are eating laying mash but one day they all just stopped laying at the same time so I thought molting after a week I got two more and they were laying for three days and they stopped at the same time to it has been two months now and nothing they are healthy and in a safe yard with a large hen house we even give them special food to promote egg laying but nothing helps this is really strange they were laying for months before this and are still young

I am in callahan Florida we have only had two cold days here so far and they get 12-13 hours of light but I have thought about adding light for the early mornings to give them a little more its just strange the way they all stopped on the same day I tell my wife if they don't lay they will fry and she gets mad and says no way there her pets

Hens need at least 14 hours of light to lay consistently
