I have five chickens. I used to have six. One has recently disappeared. I think some critter got to it. Probably the same place one of my barn cats went too. . .
My task is to get them to lay eggs. They were laying when I first got them, and then they stopped. It might have been dog related (dog's gone), not enough space (they're pretty much free range now) and they just finished molting (shouldn't they start laying again?). I guess that leaves me putting a light (and heat) on them.
But anyway, this is my latest quest. To get my chickens to lay eggs again, and perhaps to get a few more chickens to join them. Chickens are amusing creatures I have discovered, they make the funniest noises, and it's interesting how a bunch of birds have different personalities.
But if they aren't laying eggs, why do I have them? I guess they make a good food disposal, they'll eat just about anything I throw at them, to include chicken.
