Looks like my chickens sloooooooooowed down with their laying recently. No eggs last couple of days. Last year was the same at this time. Days get shorter by a lot at this time. I only have 7 hens at this time. I think recently only about 4 of them were laying,,,,,,, and not that great. My aging flock is on low production mode. My 2 newest arrivals are my Seramas. Hatched March and May 2019. well,,,, not the best egg providers,,,,, but :love
Yes,,,,,,,,, we now need eggs from the grocery store:(

and here is something to share,,,,,,,,,,

My 5 girls have that raggedy molting look going on and are seriously considering every day if they can be bothered to give me an egg. Poor things to look so naked just as it's starting to get cold!

That coffee looks good Cavey, thanks for bringing it!

Serama's lay those smaller egg's, don't they? You might need to get a couple new pullet's in the spring that lay the bigger egg's, to start to replace your aging flock. That coffee look good. I'll take mine without the cream and sugar, please! :D

If I had another coop/run and didn't really need eggs, I'd try Seramas. Cute little things.

Good morning, everybody! How are all of you doing?
It's been raining here in Maine- and is a very quiet day. I was able to have a cup of coffee... and... hehe... a piece of my Mother's homemade apple pie before getting started on projects! What is everyone's favorite thing about Autumn?

I love foliage and pumpkin baked goods! Along with watching birds head out for migration.

I like the changing colors:),, Cooler temps to do outdoor activities without sweating soooooo much. And probably #1,,,,, no more insects to drink my blood one mosquito at a time. I also like the way Autumn is long, and gradual change to the inevitable Winter. Spring seems to be tooooo short going from COLD to HOT in a very short period. (at least here in my area.

Fall has always been my favorite time of year. The changing leaf colors, the little nip of cold in the morning, cocoa with marshmallows, relaxing after working all summer. Things start to slow down a bit.

Lots of things to appreciate this time of the year (I'll probably think of at least 5 more after hitting 'send' on my post :p ).

I'm building a new coop for my ladies:clap. It is somewhat 2x the size of my current. (still in construction stage) In springtime, I think of getting 2-3 LF layers. Considering an EE, and something else that I may not have had before. :idunno Sure would like to get one of the beauties from Transylvania,,,,, but they are not very common here. An Icelandic is also on the short list as well.
My aging hens do get to live out their Golden Years to the end. They will be here to provide me Chicken TV:thumbsup
