Zero Eggs



It has been some time since the gals gave us any eggs..... so I have put a group of golf balls inside their shed. I am hoping they will get the urge! Mabel and Eva spotted them this morning!

Watch this space!

Once again a complete alphabet covered in ABC Wednesday - next week we start Round 14!

  1. How on earth have you managed with no eggs from these formidable ladies! Hope you get some very soon!

  4. The farmer says it is the short daylight hours and that once we get another fortnight over, if the sun comes out they might start again = we aren#'t getting any eggs either. Thank you for your lovely home made card - very clever.

  5. Goodness no eggs... is this common ?
    Do you need to put a light on every morning to wake them up ?

  9. Does it only take the 'urge' to get these ladies going?

  10. Nothing like the power of suggestion!
    Hope it works Denise.
    It seems almost impossible that we will begin Round 14 next week. I find that quite amazing...

  11. I think that these hens are on strike; have you been treated them well?!Perhaps golf balls are not their ideas of incentive!! Kate, ABC Team

  13. After 18 months they will lay much less, commercially that's when they get the chop and new stock are brought in, that's the reality. Sorry to be so blunt but I'm sure you're aware of that. Give them a few weeks to get back into egg laying condition and you may get a few more. Most breeds live to about 4 years so you see their life and laying cycle. We did have one that lived to 6, retired!

  15. so the golf balls were there for a reason. When I was growing up, we always left one egg for the hen, (In Borneo)
