    This is not meant to offend anyone, but I have noticed that my girls won't lay on the Sabbath! Come Monday morning they are back at work. But never not once have I found 1 egg on Sunday! Believe me, I've been keeping watch and come Sunday they take a break. I think it is neat and yes probably a coincidence, but it is still neat!

    I always think that on sundays or holidays that I won't get any eggs and then I remember that my chickens don't know what day it is. That is so cool.
  4. Interesting to say the least. It made me really miss my memory though........I could not keep track of when like that !

    Haha, my girls started out like that, too, but I think they eventually lost track of the days. Have you ever thought it was Friday when it was really Thursday? It would probably be easier on them if the poor dears could read the calendar... !
