Nov 2011 4 hens and about 3 per day and egg getting Larger they lay in the under the pine trees
How are the Braggs Mountain Buffs doing?
real good seems the chilly weather down here in FL has the girls taking some time off or chould I put a light in the coop ?
I am interested in getting some of these birds. Are they really big? Can you post pictures of them?
Having moved from Central Michigan the beginning of Dec, to Daytona Beach, I've found that I now see more daylight even though we had the same time zone. I think it's because we are closer to the equator and actually see more sun than up north. Might be wrong and it's an illusion, but doesn't matter.
The answer is yes... run a light on a timer to come on around 4:00a and go off sometime after full sun, and again from almost getting dark to about 8:00p and you should see a remarkable change in laying patterns, provided food, water and other environmental elements remain unchanged (molting started or something).
We made that change and increased our egg production output... so you should get similar results.
Anyone still doing these Braggs Mountain Buffs?
update 4 /2014 one BMT Hen left
They're not long lived birds. 4 years of production at the most.
