    I am new to posting. I have read often but never dared to post anything. We got our chickens in the spring they just started laying before Thanksging. We have 14 chickens and one rooster. I have to gather the eggs immediately or they freeze and crack after a couple hours. It is very cold here.

    Thankyou for all the tips and wisdom i have enjoyed reading your posts.
