The situation is that we have the choice of keeping our hens where we are currently living or taking them to a barn on the property we will be moving to, but aren't sure how soon. There they would have three times the indoor space in an old barn that has a hayloft above (warmer), while here, they are on the top of a windy hill in a smaller and less comfy coop, which was rough last year. We are in NW MA. If we take them to the barn, they would not get out as often (only when we are working there), but the bigger question is whether we are taking too big a chance by not collecting eggs daily. They have never eaten eggs, and I have even picked up several from the floor that were laid while roosting but never touched. I have mixed feelings and am wondering if anyone has had success with such a situation. Thanks.
