The chickens are now laying just above what we need to deliver with your boxes. Thank goodness! Everyone who gets eggs with their Eatwell Box will get eggs this week. Last week I increased the afteroon extra feed from 100lbs of organic cracked corn to 150. Corn gives them energy, keeps them warm through the night. We have had visitors to the farm who have said that we seem to have the chicken operation running well. They are suprised when I say I think we are only doing a 50% job. There is so much to learn. Every year we make strides forward but it feels like all this knowledge needs to rediscovered. I could spend all my time working on and improving our egg laying hens.
