The days are getting a little longer, and the sun is shining a little bit brighter in this beautiful January weather. We are starting to see eggs! Chickens need about 14 hours of daylight to lay their best, so as the light decreased in the fall and winter, so did the egg production. By mid November, they completely stopped laying and their bodies went through the molting stage followed by a much needed rest for the winter. Our first egg appeared about a week ago, first one, then two, then three. Today, I gathered eight. The young ones, now about six months old are starting to lay their pretty little pullet eggs. It looks like you may soon see Tangle Ridge Farm Eggs for sale again at the Wild Ramp.
