    So sad you don't have Legbar eggs with you. Not a single one started laying. Next time.

    Take lots of pics and happy travels

    Welcome to winter? [​IMG]

    My 9 girls are still giving me 6-8 eggs a day. Hooray for Alabama and having an open coop. Ofcourse, it's their first year and started laying in July/August. It's not uncommon for late-in-the-year layers to not slow down until later in the winter, if at all.

    No man around the hen house though, so nothing to hatch.

    i'm going to clear out some "dead wood" from my 2 big coops
    they might want a little extra space...?
    also my feed bill is over $100 a month
    i'll see if i can get that down some

    I've noticed with some of the less wonderful weather mine rather stay in the coop and eat, eat, eat. Doesn't help they're on crumble because I have some juveniles. Crumble always wastes more [​IMG]

    One day of rain and they'll eat 2-3 days worth of food [​IMG] Fatties.
