"The Older Flock Isn't Laying Much Anymore"

Yeah right! Look at this gorgeous dozen!

That doesn't include the 2 extras that didn't fit in the carton, so clearly some of the hens are working overtime and laying double.

It seems as if some of the hens weren't laying due to molting and/or brooding behavior. First I was only receiving 1 egg per day, then 5, then 6, and today 14! I do expect that with the return of colder weather in the Fall and Winter, that likely this shift in temperature will have more of an effect on the older birds, than the younger ones. But for now, it's nice to see such lovely output.

Now I'm swimming in eggs, so if you are in the area and would like to purchase for $2 per dozen, let me know.
