Eggs, Eggs, Eggs

We have decided that our hens are just plain crazy!

Normally, the hens experience a “slow” laying season each year. Unfortunately, their slow time is our busy pumpkin patch time. The slow down is mainly due to fall molting, shorter colder days, and sheer numbers of visitors at the farm. This year, their egg production did not pick up much at all after their molting. Our minds began to contemplate lots of fried chicken, chicken and rice, and chicken and noodles this winter. They must of read our minds because against all odds (production should slow during cold snaps), those ladies began laying – and laying lots!

So….if you are interested in Johnstown Farm Fresh Eggs, give us a call! I know many of you asked about the eggs during the fall when we were running out each day. This is your chance to get in on the benefits of fresh eggs!

One Lone Coon

So one lone coon has been trapped near the chicken coop. Papa is pretty sure that it took more than one coon to do that much damage. The 3 surviving hens have been quite hesitant to leave their nests these past couple of days. How sad!
