|I will wash it when I use it. |
It did snow yesterday.
It has been seven weeks since Thelma laid an egg. On Friday, I was surprised by the discovery of an egg in her nest as she stood up. I had quit going in and looking in the nest. I know this will not continue, but I am rejoicing because I will have a good egg for breakfast. I bought eggs at the store, but just won't eat them.
She is three-years-old and it is cold and darker. In the summer I was getting about five eggs each week from her. Lucy is too young to lay and Louise has retired.
Have your chickens stopped laying for the winter and surprised you with an egg? Other than light and sufficient protein, do you have any ideas for improving production? How about a good talk for hens? I can line them up and give a pep talk.
