    Nicely done- congratulations! Obviously, your birds are content and well-nourished and are rewarding you. We're very happy with our hens too, 22 weeks and producing an average of 11 eggs daily, though this may decrease with the approach of winter.[​IMG]

    I know what you mean! When I gathered eggs yesterday I told the hens "You can start slowing down for winter anytime now".
    I'm noticing more and more feathers in the coop the last couple of days. Maybe they'll moult and give me a break from trying to figure out what to do with all these eggs!
