They're back!

For the longest time I was having so many troubles with my dang chickens! Last year at this time I had around 60.....I'm down to about 25! Over the fall and winter, they were literally dropping off like flies. It was the weirdest thing and I couldn't quite figure out what was wrong. Then I managed to get a really knowledgeable guy on the phone from the feed store and he led me to a couple of products that saved my chickens! Yesterday, I checked in the hen house. Routine, even though they've not been laying eggs in months. To my great surprise there were 19 eggs! WOW! Today, I've collected 12 eggs! Apparently, my girls are back and they're doing better than ever.....which is good....I won't have to make dinner out of them!
