Spring is right around the corner & as the days get longer that will trigger the girls to start laying again soon. Some use lights in the coop on timers. Set to come on early in the am to simulate early sunrise & then on at nite for a bit to make the day seem longer like in summer. I am doing that now and getting between 12-17 eggs a day. Hope this helps. But the winter break is a natural thing- their bodies r taking a break.

I believe mine are all doing molting . They all had different times. They sure are pretty now with their nice new feathers!

My barred rocks haven't taken a break yet. Both Easter eggers took six weeks off. They will be a year old in a few weeks.
