The girl's egg production had dwindled to three eggs every couple of days. We eat more than that every morning. I actually bought a dozen eggs from Wal-Mart. I was blaming it on the hens molting and the days getting shorter so I had put a light on them but had to turn it on and off and sometimes I would forget. A dear friend that obviously knows way more than I do about chickens told me to put a light on them 24 hours a day and not to worry about it. I can now say that it worked. We are back up to 18 eggs day and counting. Thanks Charlie. The two brown/black hens look like that are gossiping about the Light Brahma Rooster behind his back. Shhhh. We won't tell.
I work part time as well as raise and show dairy goats and make and sell goat milk soaps and lotions. My life is BUSY!!
