Hooray! The Strike Is Over!

Good news! The chickens are finally laying eggs again. 🐓 Some of you might remember the blog from last year

where I explained the reason behind winter egg shortages. During the winter, loss of light and shorter days cause the chickens to go into conservation or rest mode. 


Large or commercial chicken corporations will use artificial light to try and trick the chickens into laying longer, but it's still not a perfect solution. Production is definitely reduced. That's why you will see higher prices in the grocery store. I don't use artificial light on our farm. I believe if that's the way their bodies are designed, it's best to let them do what is natural for them. Now that the days are getting longer, hopefully large chicken farms will respond with lower prices in the grocery store..... we will see. 😏
