FEATURED COMMENT

Thank you to online reader cindy.maier for your comment on Backyard Chicken Facts - 5 Things No One Told Us:

"I had chickens for years and absolutely LOVED them.  I miss them, but thank goodness, I am moving soon to a place where I can have them again.  Did you know that chickens will stop laying in the winter because of shorter days?  The remedy is to put a (red heat lamp) light out at their coop that comes on in the evenings.  It will trick them into thinking it's still laying season.  Just wanted to share that tip, in case you didn' know."

Do you have some knowledge to share about backyard chickens? Leave a follow-up comment.
