So - DD comes home from school yesterday and asks me this question: DD: "Mom - is it true that chickens will stop laying eggs because they have cold feet?" Me: "Who told you that?" DD: "Uhmmmm...a friend of mine said her grandfathers chickens stopped laying and its because their feet got cold." Me: " Uh - nooooooo I dont believe thats the case - I think they only stop laying 1. when they get too old, 2. when they molt, 3. if they have an issue with protein/lack of certain needs being met, 4. if not enough daylight in the winter it can slack off - however I've never heard freezing feet causing eggs to stop." DD: "Are you SURE? *and now she's giving me the once over*" Me: "Well I'm fairly sure... are YOU sure its a friend and not YOU?" LOL DD: "Well.....actually its my teacher..." Me: *chokes on water* "your teacher? Which one would this be?" DD: *grinning ear to ear now and turning all shades of red* "Uhmmmm... my Ag teacher" Me: " " YOUR WHAT?!!! "Honey I dont think he's correct, but I'll ask...." So... now I"m wondering... if her Ag teacher is telling her this... uh..... tell me I'm right and the teacher is 100% wrong on this one! LOL!
