Well, we got 6 eggs, so far, this morning! And it's 6 above! The hens don't seem the cold so much as it's sunny outside and they like to sun themselves after all the cloudy weather we have been having.
The fella where we buy our chicken feed told us to put a light bulb in the chicken house to encourage their laying longer in the season. So hub went out and put in a 60 watt bulb. It worked... sorta. We got an egg or 2.. off and on. Nothing to write home about.
But when the 60 watt bulb burned out a couple of weeks ago, and he went to replace it, we didn't have a new one so he substituted a 100 watt bulb. Within a few days production started to go up. And it's been improving since. No, it's not like spring time usually is, but it's an improvement over what we've had so far!
