Laying Summary – March 2013
April 10, 2013 § Leave a comment
As leaves begin to colour and fall, egg production also wanes, and March is typically the last month where we can be free with our egg consumption. Although the fact that we usually worm the girls in March (before moving them on to their winter quarters) means that it’s more “freedom to feed eggs to the girls” more than “freedom to cook dishes using a dozen eggs or more”. As you can see from the chart:
By one of those glorious incongruities that go along with Poppy’s annual breaks for motherhood, she has suddenly started laying again and leaped into first place with 15 eggs. Yay Poppy! In second place was Holly with 12 eggs, and tied for third were Adelaide (who seems to have returned from her moult very quickly) and Dorothy, with 10 eggs each. Lily, Erica, Olivia, Ella, Neroli and Gabby are all starting to go into their moults now, and are distinctly scruffy-looking.
