We have one girl who decided to do a small molt during the heat wave, and we are still getting 1-2 eggs per day. Eggs are great, strong, rich, uniform, etc. Girls and roo look fat and bright.
I'm not going to change anything because they are obviously healthy, but I wasn't expecting them to become snobbish about their nutrition sources and bypass me entirely. I feel negligent, but they obviously were not pleased with my hose water and pressed pellet choices.
Do chickens do this often!? Do they decide to just sustain themselves?is this a miracle that my budget should be glad for, or a pretty regular thing that my budget should still be glad for?
