Chicken Strike
I'm not sure if it's the weather, or the hours or daylight, but the girls are just not laying. Many days lately there is one lonely egg out in the laying box. For all those girls, just one egg.

Well, we know that Trixie is no longer laying her eggs for us. We're not sure if she just stopped laying or she just hides them really good. We think that deep down she's an Easter Bunny. She used to give us these green/blue eggs, and now nothing, not even one since August. But she flies out of the chicken pen first thing in the morning and does her own thing.

I remember our three original chickens, David, Henrietta and Tinkerbell slowed down a little last fall, but nothing like this.

We're wondering if perhaps it's due to the other changes we've made lately, like adding new girls and the addition of the roosters, but it's been a few weeks so you'd think everyone would be used to things by now.

Speaking of roosters, Bartholemew is the biggest baby. He's so beautiful and he'll go around and strut his stuff, but as soon as I make a move for him he just cowers. He does the same around Mrs. Wiggles, one of his coop-mates. It's so funny since she's half his size. Oh well, looks can be deceiving.
