With one of the fires just over the hill, my hens have really slowed down. I don't think it is anything other than the smoke. Over the phone I have told an in-law in N. J. about this problem. He said it is just in my head. When I told him that the smoke from the fires were not only in Ca., but Nevada and Or. He still didn't get the picture. So I then told him that if they put all the fires together, it would be larger than the state of Rhode Island. Now the gets the picture. Hope that the hens don't get egg bound. It is just to bad some of the water from the floods of the mid west can't be shipped here. We could sure use the water.
