Have you noticed how dark it’s been in the evening hours? Well the hens at Four Corners Farm are noticing it, too.
Our egg production has gone down with the sunlight. The cold also causes the chickens to use most of their calories just to keep warm, instead of producing eggs. We do not use artificial light to “trick” our layers into producing regularly during these darker months. Our belief is to allow the God-given rhythms to play out for our animals…. they need a break (and deserve it, too)! We certainly appreciate your understanding and patience as we await spring and increased production from our layers.
May your holidays be filled with light and hope!
