After a fabulous and productive two weeks of egg-laying, the hens are rebelling. We were getting 2-4 eggs a day, and now we haven't had an egg in 3 days! So, I went out today (with my camera, of course) to have a chat with the hens. First I consulted the leader of the pack, Joey.
|Clearly he has no idea what is going on with these women! Remember he is a man. ;)|
Next I got up close and personal with some of the lovely ladies. Here's what they had to say:
|This is Goldie. She is more of a summer girl. She dislikes the cooler weather because she hasn't been able to work on her golden tan. This might be a long winter for Goldie...|
|As you can tell, Callie wasn't too keen on being |
So anyway, that's how I spent an hour of my afternoon. I still didn't talk them into egg laying. So I have given them an ultimatum. No eggs=no treats. So shape up girls! Start earning your keep. ;)
I'll leave you with this:
Psychiatrist: What's wrong with your brother?
Sister: He thinks he's a chicken.
Psychiatrist: How long has be been acting like a chicken?
Sister: Three years. We would have come in sooner, but we needed the eggs.
