Supplemental light does the trick for us when they slow down in the winter, they really want at least 12 hours of light a day for their laying cycles, so a light on a timer in the coop gives them that extra light for us. In other parts of the world where you actually have a winter that you can notice the light can also work as a space heater for the coop, not really needed here in central Arizona, but then again we have misters on our run and we know somebody who went so far as to install a window mounted AC unit in their coop.
