As the end of the month has passed it's now time for another egg count. I think I forgot to do April so you won't have seen the massive spike in activity - they were obviously enjoying the Spring weather!
May saw a bit of a dip (although certainly not anything to complain about). In April we were regularly getting 4 a day but in May we had a number of problems - the egg eating started which we think was brought on by some soft shelled eggs. Luckily it looks as though it hasn't turned into a bad habit and they only eat the soft shelled ones, which are must less frequent this month. We think they happening partly because the older girls are getting on a bit and because of their battery farm days they probably don't have much more laying in them - but we also think it might have been because we were feeding them too many treats. In the worst type of parenting technique we kept giving them corn and kitchen scraps to shut them up if there were wingey. We're now being much more harsh and they're not getting treats until evening and only a little, and that seems to be much better.
At the moment we are getting 3 a day most days, athough they don't seem to like this weather and we have had a little dip again.
So concludes your monthly egg report!
