Some of you already know this, but as I've mentioned in other threads I use a radio on a timer that blares talk radio out from sunset to sunrise as a predator deterrent. Since it does seem to help I believe that predators are of the liberal persuasion. When I awoke this A.M., and even before I'd had any coffee I had an epiphany; The opposite also seems to be true. It seems that the louder and longer I play the radio the more eggs I get. I'm now getting 10 eggs from 12 hens daily and even Lame Duck has recently started giving us one almost everyday. I consider this to be empirical evidence that the following is a truism: All predators are liberal! All poultry are conservative! Ah finally, the coffeepot's done. I'm off to get a cup.
