We have a mixed flock of 10 hens that were born last spring. My husband made a skelter that we had displayed on our table and it was great because you always knew which egg to use first. We live in New England and it is full on winter here so since the eggs are sometimes super cold when we get them from the coop it seems like they should be stored in the fridge. Problem is I can't figure out how to manage the eggs in egg cartons without having to do a ton of shifting around of eggs. We are getting between 2-4 eggs a day now that it is freezing out. I know eggs are going to last in the fridge a very long time (we don't wash them) so I'm not worried about them going bad, but I like to use the older ones first, or if I am eating something that won't be throughly cooked I may want to be using my freshest eggs. The Skelter won't fit in the fridge and I don't want something that takes up a lot of room. Second question, we aren't heating our coop at all (just have a water heater) and I was expecting the egg production to stop completely, but so far it has just slowed down a lot. I am very happy to get 2-4 eggs a day because I was going to be annoyed by paying for feed and having to buy eggs, but we have decided against putting a light in to trick the girls into laying more. We have Easter Eggers, Silver Laced Wyandottes, Black Australorpes and Cuckoo Marans. Is it because it is their first year that they are still laying and future years they won't? Is it the breeds? And is it more the cold or the length of day that reduces their egg production? The days are already getting longer, but we have several months of cold left. thanks for your help!
