slowing down the production

it's interesting, overcast skies, dark rainy skies, summer's daylight waning truly does mean slower egg production. today just one egg. i spent a little time searching about just in case the ladychickens had decided to change things up a bit and lay outside of their nests. nope, just one egg today, two yesterday.

am i bothered, upset, disappointed? not a bit. i find the whole relation curious and i'm tempted to begin with daily light treatments to see if that brings on any change. but before i do, i'm going to observe further and see how consistent this new schedule becomes or if this is simply a short week of egg vacation.

i'm happy having the ladies around either way. they are far more than just egg layers for me. they are my chickenchicas, i love those girls.
