Q: When will my chickens begin laying again in the spring?

A:

Some chicken breeds lay year round (save when they go broody). At my latitude, any girls who stop laying during the winter begin again regularly--and surprisingly precisely--on February 1 or 2, about halfway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. If you live in an area where day length doesn't change much, your chickens may begin laying sooner (or never stop). If you live in an area where winter days are very short and dark, they may begin laying again later in the year. When they begin laying again will also depend on the breed, as some show breeds lay very few eggs in general, and even fewer in the winter
