Here's Elvis, out with his gals and he's singing a new song! "It's now or never......" he croons. Elvis is as concerned as I am about our hens' dwindling egg production. Ever since that dog attack several weeks ago, production has been way down. We are lucky if we even get a half dozen eggs a day. And we have 30 hens. So, gals, it's now or never.....or you all may become chicken soup!
Actually, I have 30 more brown egg layers on order. These new hatchlings are scheduled to arrive this week. I have a spare henhouse to start these new chicks, but once they are ready to lay, will be moved to the present hens' house. So, our hens have 20 weeks to get back in gear, or they might have to become soup chickens. Until that time, they will continue to have the wonderful life that they presently enjoy.
