Sad Day.


Our favorite chicken died a last week. We got our first two eggs and the next day Henrietta was dead. I don't know if they were her eggs, but we haven't had an egg since. Henrietta was the only chicken that liked us! When we let the chickens out she would just waddle on up to the back porch wanting to come in and hang out. She would let Tate just pick her up and tote her around under his arm. He'd have a chicken under one arm and a kitty under the other. It was so cute. I'm sad to see her go, now we're down to 4 chickens and still no eggs. They are just over 6 months old now so we should be seeing some production anytime now.

Ask the feed store about what they recommend to get your girls laying. Sometimes they need a 'jump' start. :) They made also need some calcium/oyster to harden things up which may (or may not) help. Good Luck.
