I can safely say the chicken molt at The Compound is officially over! We're back up to nearly 9 dozen eggs a week! We got down to a low of around 3 dozen, but in the last few weeks, they've all hit high gear again!
We have between 30 and 35 hens in total. Some of our hens are older and not laying nearly as many as before, as this is year 2 for some. So the girls lay between 3 and 4 eggs each per week. Not as good as some of the Red Buff breeds, but good enough for us!
Looking forward to hatching out a new generation later this spring.
FYI - Walter is doing fine. A bit hen-pecked, but holding his own. He was glad to see me!
