Eggs in a Blizzard

Winter Storm Draco is spinning over us right now. It’s difficult to see how much of the snow we see is falling and how much is being picked up and blown about by the winds.

This summer, with it’s extreme heat and drought, put our hens off laying. When the heat ended, the girls started their moult and we continued to find just an egg or two every 4-5 days.

Finally in late October, egg production picked up. Now we get an average of four eggs per day from our 12 hens, even though we are into late December. Today I found 2 eggs in their favorite spot in the run, even though it is quite exposed to the wind and snow. Good girls!
