Someone pulled a switch and *whamo* it’s fall in New Hampshire. Sweaters are now worn in the morning, decongestants are needed to unclog stuffy, allergy congested noses, and we’re starting to see a fuller range of autumn browns and golds around.
The chickens are well aware of the seasonal change. We’ve already seen a dramatic decrease in egg production prompting many of my chicken friends to ask me:
“What will you do with your chickens?”
Some of the members of my flock are over 4 years old. They’ve given us years of not only eggs, but also entertainment and companionship. Feathers are beginning to fall out and some of the girls are starting to look a little weary. What will I do with my chickens, now that they’re getting older?
Why, I’m going to let them lie in the sun to take the rests they so deserve.
And when it’s my turn, I hope to do the same.
