Giving Thanks For Eggs

We are thankful that we are still getting a few eggs a day from our outside chickens that are still in the coop.  Chickens normally need 14 hours of light a day to lay eggs consistently.  There is now daylight for about 10 1/2 hours a day, which makes the nights seem so long.  Furthermore, we are loosing three minutes of precious light every day so we will see how long they can hold out and still lay eggs.  We need to get some things changed around the barn so we can get them moved in there where we can leave a little light on for them all winter.

I too am so thankful for fresh eggs,and am not looking forward to shorter days this winter, we too need to find other arrangements.
Thanks for sharing, and thank you for visiting me and for taking the time to leave me such a sweet note.
