Back in Production

Now that the number of daylight hours are increasing, the avian ladies of Windwomen Farm are settling back into their nest boxes. We have 14 hens, but 6 of these girls are more than 4 years old, so 6 or 7 eggs per day is the best output we can really expect.  The team has had record lows this winter...1 to 3 eggs per day with some zero days sprinkled in there.  But, they are ramping up on a grand scale!  Yesterday I gathered 10 eggs...definitely a winter record!  The picture above is the last 2 days harvest! Nice!

Now if I can just stop dropping them on the way back to the house....
