    I had to do this yesterday! I felt so guilty, but I only have one hen laying right now and 5, 27 wk old free-loaders. Please don't mention the mysterious new carton in the fridge, I don't want Dandelion to be jealous. However, the others could use some inspiration...

    I had to do the same over the weekend. With the short days and one hen molting I've only gotten one egg in two weeks [​IMG]
    Needless to say it inspired me to get my lights up and on a timer and give my Marans pullets a pep talk to get on with the laying!

    Every week when the DW and I go grocery shopping I ask as we walk by the eggs, "Do we need eggs?"

    As always we chuckle.

    This last week we had a coupon for 18 eggs and she needed some for baking so we did buy some. As i made breakfast on Sunday morning I cracked one in with the regular girls eggs and there was a noticeable difference.
