The little red hen sitting in her nest box looks so happy and comfy! Or maybe not if she’s in the middle of laying an egg…!
Hi Amanda, our hens are usually very happy. I think they have a pretty good life When it gets really cold, I cook them oatmeal!
Amanda, come on over here and see where the gang is hanging out these days: Click on Forums at the top of this page.
Love to have you join us again.
I love looking at all of your hens! They look so healthy and happy! Do you get many eggs throughout the fall and winter? We are down to 1 or 2 eggs everyday, but the hens are molting and a dreaded skunk has been hanging around the barn!
No Kari, the egg production really starts dropping come mid October. Then with the time change and the winter cold starting to settle in, it drops even more. I have used a light in the coop on a timer, so they get 14 hours of daylight to get them laying again. I didn’t like how much energy that took out of the chickens, to keep laying in the cold.
