    Chickens molt in the late summer through the early fall.

    Thanks. Did not know if that was why production has slowed or if it was the 110 degree temps

    110?! You've got us beat by several degrees. Sounds like the perfect weekend for flip flops and margaritas. Hang on tight kids, mama's pulling out the blender!
