Children ( at least my grand children) Love them...entertainment factor is high. It takes a bit for all the parts to sync with the girls. Egg production becomes more predictable as they finish up that first year.

Had a short conversation with the chickens today, I told them as much as I like fried eggs in the morning I also enjoy chicken and dumplings for supper. So it’s their choice how my nutritional needs are met. 😂😂😂
Yup, mine are molting and only the Americana’s are laying daily. Feathers everywhere. Something is under the chicken house🥴I thought it was a gopher but today I found a rat. Oh Lordy...I’m trying to figure out how to get lawnmower exhaust into the runs...well I assume they are runs. We are above some wetlands and with all the rain forcin them up to higher land. Sceeves me to the bone.
This adds nothing productive to this thread but I read this, that somebody posted elsewhere...
"My brother thinks he's a chicken but we don't want to have him committed because we need the eggs."...
Yeah - I first heard a version of that from a Woody Allen movie:
“It reminds me of that old joke- you know, a guy walks into a psychiatrist's office and says, hey doc, my brother's crazy! He thinks he's a chicken. Then the doc says, "Why don't you turn him in?" Then the guy says, "I would, but I need the eggs." I guess that's how I feel about relationships. They're totally crazy, irrational, and absurd, but we keep going through it because we need the eggs.”
**My body is a temple - unfortunately it's a fixer-upper.**

The girls are finally starting to come around to my way of thinking! We’re getting 4-6 eggs a day from the eight hens. Sadly we lost one of the girls who somehow found her way out and by the feathers scattered around didn’t fare so well. The eggs aren’t big, compared to store bought, but they’re coming regularly at this time so I won’t complain.
