The Hens are Back to Work
It may still feel like the dead of winter in many places around the country, but here in Arizona spring is quite apparent. While the hens rest during the colder winter months the egg production substantially decreases. Most all the heavy breeds continue to lay every two to three days, but the exhibition or fancy light birds quit laying altogether. But now the days are getting longer, and with warmer temperatures, the entire flock has started laying again. Even my fancy ladies Lady Madonna and Penny Lane added their pretty white eggs to the nest with all the others.
