My mom emailed me today “Any eggs yet?”
I replied “Nope.”
She emailed back, “What’s wrong with those chickens?”
I told her that I have been very direct in telling the hens that we expect eggs, but what else can I do? They are eating well, they have a nice coop and I do what I can for them.
I have had my three chickens for 4.5 weeks now. On Dec 26, they’ll be 23 weeks old. (actually 23 to 27 weeks old.) Usually hens start laying eggs at 24 weeks of age, but they often stop laying in the winter when light is dim and snow limits their exersize. ….. I can see that the hens have grown in size since i got them. And their feahters have filled out quite a bit.
We sure are looking forward to omelets…
