Hi Folks, Happy to join this group. My girls are still laying and I'm in mid NH near the VT boarder. It gets pretty chilly up hear. A long time friend of mine from FL said they're still laying eggs because the girls-are-happy. I can thank this web site for information leading to this happy outcome. I feed them scratch at night - just a snack, fresh water every day - no exceptions. They get treats suggested by other members...yoghurt and blueberries, for example. Thanks for all the sage advice!!
