Chickens used to say - Cuuu, cu, cu, cu, cu, cu. Now they say - Cooold, cooold, cooold, cooold, cooold, cooold. Was getting about 4 eggs a day. Then 3, Now 1 or 2 eggs a day. Don't know if all 4 chickens are laying eggs less often, or some of the chickens stopped laying eggs? Temperature is 0° F. Chickens now spend the day cooped up in the coop. Much more poop in the coop. Less poop outside.
Was wondering if snow would collect on the roof of the run made from 1/2" wire mesh? Fechter say "One test is worth a thousand opinions"
Celebrating the new year with some spinach.
For the record.
