Will Controlling the Lights On and Off In A Day Make A Hen Lay More Eggs?
Will providing an artificial night for six hours during the day and an artificial day for six hours during the night make a hen lay double the number of eggs per 24 hour period?
I would love to hear the answer to this question, as we will be purchasing a ranch soon and plan to have our own chickens.
Hi! If you use some artificial lighting for a couple of hours at the beginning of the day, and end of the day, it should help to increase egg production, as the hens will have longer daylight hours. But I don't think you'd be able to double egg laying.
The length of day light does affect the amount of eggs laid. The most eggs are naturally laid in the spring and early summer. Extra light encourages laying being regular throughout the year, but does not unfortunately mean they lay more eggs per year.
