    That's why I add light, not paying for feed all winter for freeloaders. Its not like I keep my birds until their 8 or anything. I can't afford to keep the numbers I do if I'm not selling their eggs. Don't think I will start with the light until Dec this year though. I want the birds to get all the way thru their molt this year. Last year a few never grew their feathers back. I'm thinking it might have had something to do with the light.

    Hi all. Just got up from a nice nap. I haven't seen anymore from her, but I don't have high hopes. My best bet would be on the coyote. Eagles are extremely rare; we have a river on the property but I just don't think we have the right habitat. I've seen them easy of here circling over the crawfish fields, but that's only been once in five years.

    Maybe she'll be waiting to come back in this evening. For weeks I've been running outside everytime I hear the egg song, trying to find the hidden nest. I can't try to just stalk them tomorrow... If she's really gone, then that drops me down to three hens, one being broody. I won't be able to sell eggs from just two layers.[/quo
    Camping put some eggs in bator now. You will have hens ready to lay in April. You are like me we live where we can raise them in the winter. Last October 31 i got 13 baby chicks for my birthday from my husband 8 were BRs. Just what I wanted to bred my lemon bars. Also got a BO roo also needed for the cross. I am waiting on my 5 cockeriels to get their adult feathers to decide who gets to mate the BRs to produce the lemon bars. Anyway enough about my genetics project. Remeber I was a biology teacher for 32 years.

    Sorry you lost two chickhens lady. I know they love free ranging but it is dangerous for them.
