    23 hens, 430 eggs , 13.9/day, 60% productivity, $0.12/egg cost

    Some of those freeloaders are going to go! But not bad for the shortest days of the year.

    70 eggs from 6. My leghorn recovered from a molt for the majority of December. BUT, other than that...WHAT DID YA'LL DO THAT I DIDN'T?!?!?! I did NOT add supplemental light, they had 16% feed with addt'l BOSS as a feed supplement.
