An Agricultural Mystery

Our chickens stopped laying.  They went from thirty a day to four literally overnight.  We did have one quite cool day, but that couldn’t have sent them into a molt already, could it?  If not, and I think not, where are the other 26 eggs?  We were kind of counting on eggs till September, the usual molting season.  Our new ladies won’t start laying until sometime in the fall, and I’ve noticed it’s really hard to get by without eggs.

Another irrelevant photo, this time of the wheat field across the street.  It was harvested this week.

Another irrelevant photo, this time of the wheat field across the street. It was harvested this week, and the whole field has an uneven, scalped look to it.  Many other wheat fields were harvested several weeks ago.

About Jennie Cooper

I'm the mother of eight children, the wife of a retired soldier, and a newly minted farmer. I spend my days fairly productively, home educating our children, raising large quantities of food for several families, and volunteering in our community. I read entire novels a page at a time in the comfort of my bathroom. I tell people I'm Catholic just because they find it so shocking. I think there's nothing so exciting as a thunderstorm coming in. It doesn't bother me at all that my dog barks outside my bedroom window all night. And I rather enjoy being 40. I didn't think I would, but 40 is pretty good.
