OK, it’s official, the days are getting longer. How do I know? The girls are laying more eggs. They are not up to their normal summertime output of a dozen eggs per day, but getting six eggs in one day is a sure sign that spring will once again return to the land.
The last several weeks we have only had two or three eggs per day. When I collected eggs this evening I collected six. A nice change. I guess that the girls are happy even if yard is mostly covered in snow.
