Wooo hoooo

December 18, 2008
Wooooo hoooo! Finally - second day in a row I got a brown egg. It's definately Paddy Cakes. She is up and running around and not sitting on the nest any longer. I can see the little nubs where her feathers are coming back in. The molt is over!!! Now, if I can just get little Bok Choy off the nest maybe I can start eating some fresh eggs again. I hadn't had any eggs since before Thanksgiving. Now I have 2 pretty little browns in the frig!

Egg Production Way Down

I've gotten no eggs for six days now! I actually had to buy 1/2 dozen eggs at the grocery store! Not only do I have 2 hens that are broody but for some reason, my two Polish Crested aren't laying either. I wonder if it's the cold? I just don't know. I miss the fresh eggs. Update: December 2 - Here is an excellant article I found regarding reduction in egg production. http://extension.oregonstate.edu/catalog/html/pnw/pnw565/
