    Just putting it out there. Vermont weather is definitely getting colder. Here it is Dec. 2nd and my girls are still laying very well. 11 laying hens, 8 eggs per day. 6 Easter eggers won't start laying until spring I believe. Wouldn't be surprised if I go to the coop one morning and find my first colored egg though.

    Seems like there have been a lot of posts from folks saying their egg production has dropped...your post was a nice change. Those are some beautiful eggs!

    I know. Here in Utah it's high in the 40's. I was getting about 8-12 eggs a day now the girls are giving me 2-4? What's up with that?! Congrats on your great egg layers. I'm jealous
