Egg Production

Egg production has fallen off this week.  I suspect it is due to shortened day light.
Do you provide artificial light for your girls? what kind and what time?
 
Or do you allow them a break from laying for the winter?
 
This is our first winter with hens, so suggestions are welcome.  Thanks in advance

If the farmers at the market doesn't work out, you may want to try a farm rescue such as Farm Sanctuary.  Also there's one in Woodstock NY and probably others.  Just google New York Farm Sanctuaries.  If I were a farm sanctuary I would be interested in a silkie rooster.  Silkies are so unique.  My little female gets all the attention from guests. 

Good luck.  :)
