I have 4 hens that adopted me in the last year. They all just showed up one after another. Anyway, The seem happy and healthy, they all layed an egg a day sometimes everyother. We got about 24-26 eggs a week. Until the last 3-4 weeks ago, Slowly the Americanna stopped laying altogether and the others yolks keep getting darker and darker. The lady at the feed store told me to but vinager in their water, Which I just read could cause zinc poisoning. I had to change to plastic bowls because the galvanized rusted right out. I just used like a 1/4 cup to a gallon of apple cidar- water. The girls daily diet consists of 4 cups crumble 4 cups pellet and about 2.5 cups scratch. They also get all kinds of kitchen scraps minus chicken. They free range 3-4 days aweek on 1.75 acres and do like to eat the wild coffee beans that grow in Florida. They have not had any shrimp or red peppers lately. Or sweet potatoes Id includ a pic of the yolks if I could figure out how and the ladies too. These yolks are soo orange they are RED. Scramble eggs are a bit scary looking. They also so seem to have a denser thicker texture, Not easy to mix. It is not Blood it is the reddest thickest yoke.
