eldusto We have seen a dramatic decrease in egg production.
In the last 11 days we have seen a 72% decrease in egg production compared to the previous 11 days. It is very common (and healthy) for chickens to slow their production during the winter months. A few things play into a typical decrease. One could be available day light. We have only seen a 0.3% decrease in daylight hours in this 11 day cycle compared to the previous and we supplement their natural light with a light in the coop so we do not think that is it. The other major factor is temperature. At Pickleberry Farm we have seen a 28% decrease in mean temperature over that same time period which could definitely play into the decrease. At Pickleberry Farm we believe it is important that we limit out interference in natural behavior and cycles. This means we provide fresh water and access to food, but we allow the chickens (and soon to be pigs) to forage naturally and with little restriction. This practice may result in lower production but will ultimately provide our family with better meat, eggs and vegetables.
