I have read a few articles with opinions on how to keep up
winter egg production.
Most suggest using a light inside the henhouse to
counteract the shortened days.
I have also read that leaving a light on all night
stresses the hens.
Our solution has been to use an infra red heat lamp
in each of the henhouses.
This helps to keep the houses warmer,
and seems to keep egg production at a good rate.
Our hens and roosters seem to make it through the winter
happy and healthy.
The dogs love the chicken yard,
and always find something yummy there.
Today it was ice chunks...
And speaking of happy and healthy.....
Have a wonderful weekend.
We will see you back on Monday with more Tales from the Farm.
