Our numbers are up!

With all this moulting going on around here, egg production has been way down! All last week out of 25 hens, we were averaging 10 to 11 eggs a day. Moulting can be a painful and miserable process for a bird of any kind. I work with owls at my job and they go off food and are not happy during moulting. However, this is how feed is bought around here, through the sale of our eggs. So we are glad to see them growing back their feathers, looking like pretty girls again and our rooster looking manly again as well! He is currently sporting no tail feathers!
