Sounds like you've got quite a nice flock!! And your getting s lot of eggs in this cold weather! My grandson would be delighted to gather all those eggs! Obviously he's the reason I have a few hens and he has done well helping out. I've tried to make the setup so easy he had no problem attending to them on his own when I'm out of town.<quoted text>
I have about 5-6 different breeds, 30 birds in all (23 hens). Mine are confined until I get some electric netting because of the dog problem. No heat for them, just have to break the ice every day. All have made it fine except 2-3 roosters got just a little frostbite on combs/wattles. Mine have layed pretty good all winter, right now averaging about 8-10 eggs every day. I'm not sure they are all laying yet, young birds.
Have a wonderful day! We're headed out and about even if there is no school--again!
