I haven't seen the likes of a full egg carton in nearly two months. Each year, the chickens molt and egg production plunges. Where we often get 18 eggs a day, we have been down to one. ONE EGG A DAY! This is not enough to feed our family. With chicken food prices on the rise, we've been spending about $30 a month to feed the chickens though they do eat the grass, too. This is seriously troublesome. I'm currently paying $1 per egg.
I gave the ladies a swift warning yesterday and wouldn't you know, four eggs appeared later that afternoon. I think I need to do a little more threatening today.
