    Mine had all but stopped laying (1 a day with 12 of my girls being old enough to lay) between moulting and the weather change. Yesterday and today I got 5 eggs! I guess chickens can have the Christmas spirit too!

    They were hatched July 8th so they are about 6 1/2 months old.
    On a side note.... I am wondering what is going on with the turkeys. I saw the tom Blue on one of my hens 2 days ago but I have not found any eggs from her. Our ground is snow covered and I have not found a place outside of the coop where she could be laying but there are no eggs inside other than the chickens.
