A few of my birds are lamenting the time change.
Me too . I can't stand all this darkness....
I like standard time. I go to work before sunrise.
My chickens are in the coop and locked up before 5 pm, instead of 9 pm.
I'm in bed earlier.
I get more sleep.
It's dark when I get home, can't enjoy the outdoors.
It's cold here.
We get snow, shoveling gets boring after the second snow storm.
Egg production slows or stops.
Opening the coop, checking feed and water in sub-freezing temperatures.
Shoveling snow in uncovered pen.
Frozen eggs. Fortunately I can check for eggs in the middle of the day, so I only get a couple each winter when it's teens or below Fahrenheit.
Weekly cleaning of my small coops in Freezing temperatures is not fun.
Okay; I changed my mind, give me Daylight savings time. GC
Ha, @GC-Raptor, I knew you'd come around.
My gals are laying better than ever... it gets SO hot here in the summer so I think they lay less then.. and now they are loving the cooler temps... never mind the shorter days!
