    They layed like crazy in the cold. I had eggs coming out of my ears. I advertise to sell hatching eggs and they stop. The males stop crowing. The males stop mating. The hens stop laying. The calls keep coming. Dumb Birds.

    This is similar to putting away the snow shovel because the weather has been so warm...then a snow storms comes. Or washing your car because it is not going to rain....of COURSE it rains. LOL Advertise to sell butt loads of eggs and the birds stop laying!!!
