First Eggs

Finally after 29 weeks my March chicks started laying. Usually my birds reach their point of lay at about 18 weeks, this year was far from the usual. I blame the delay on weather, this year Phoenix experienced brutal heat. Most of July and August hit 110, with a few days reaching 118. Although my ladies have a mist system and a fan, this kind of weather takes it’s toll.
Cooler weather has arrived, that means happy birds… and that’s what fills the egg basket.
