    between the hi temps and the molting,the babes almost quit laying.first i tried 1 tablespoon of sugar/gal of water which made them kind of hiper.i quit that and went to giving them my used coffee grounds,seems to have done the trick.i'm almost back to what i was getting previously/day.the only thing now is...i can't advertise "CAFFINE FREE EGGS"....[​IMG]
