I noticed this morning when I went to make eggs for breakfest that the yolks were as bright as they usually are.They taste and smell fine but WHY????????We are feeding the same thing and they are healthy girls,now could the day light thing do any thing with this perhaps not ebough sun light???

Do your birds free range ? If it is anything there like it is here in southwest Ohio we are burnt up weather wise. We are in a severe drought according to the weather folks on the news. Grass browned out a couple months ago, insect production would have fallen off greatly as well I would imagine. Could be a factor.

YES ,the weather is awful,the ground is brown and just hard.The birds are let out in the evening and they do have some grass next to the hen house to eat and they go out to the bean field.

That^^ We are in a drought too. Greens (beta carotene) is what gives the yolks that bright orange color.
