definitely add light for a couple of hours in the beginning or end of the day. a clip light on a timer works great. There is a chicken kibble called Farmers Helper and you can get it in either large or small bags. You feed it as 1/10th of feed ration during times of stress or all the time if you can afford it. I like it a lot. You cal also give some handfuls of dog kibble and/or scrambled eggs from time to time. Be sure they have oyster shell and if you want you can get some oils like kickin chicken.
when the days get shorter they will slow down considerably. If you supplement light and give some kibble or extra protein scraps, they should keep laying all winter.
How old are your chickens?
I got the impression that they are older, but its unclear.
This has truly been an extreme year for many flocks in my group. Just give them time...they should come out of it.

A chicken stops laying during molting so perhaps you have some of that going on. When molting some hens are very obviously losing feathers and with others it is more subtle.

Another thought, may they be more affected by shorter days.??   I have a coop, and my husband found a battery operated, round light, it has about 20 circle with mini halogen bulbs, it is on all night, as battery operated cannot be used with  a timer.  It does not heat up.

A red star or sexk line should not stop laying at one and a half,  she may be internal laying.  Or is another hen eating the eggs??  Have you uped her protein like Agway 18 or 20 percent protein??
 
I have two and three year old sex links and they are still producing.
