Love 'em!Just this morning as my wife and I ate breakfast, I mentioned how blessed we are to have these eggs. We have had chickens for a lot of years. I would like to offer a few pointers: 1) I put a timer in my coop so the light comes on every morning at 6:00 and off every night at 8:00. I get eggs all year long. 2) When the hens get old, it's hard to cull them because you feel endeared to them for all the many breakfasts they have provided. Do the hard thing and thin your herd. Your production will be better for it.
