This past weekend our neighbours were away so we got to collect their eggs: a dozen on Saturday; 14 on Sunday and 15 on Monday! They are egg-laying machines. And it’s winter time
I was talking with the neighbour this morning and she told me that she had been tossing some mixed birdfeed out for them and she decided to watch to see which seeds they preferred. It was the peanuts.
Now, she buys a bag of peanuts just for the chickens. Since then more eggs are produced AND they are larger in size than what they’d get prior. Huh!
