Night chickens


We STILL don't have any eggs, but our favorite chicken farmer told us that if their combs are red, they are ready to lay. Bessie's too young, but Sarah and Ella need to start earning their keep! He said they need at least 14 hours to lay, so we have given them their very own night light.

I think they are still adjusting to it. As you can see from this picture, they seem to think that it's roosting time, light be damned!

My grandma used to keep chickens & she always kept the light on for extra hours this time of year to keep them laying. Hope it works for you too.
