Chicken egg production down

One bit of good / bad news.

Bad news, our chicken egg production is down this week. We may need to cut off orders before all are filled. It has been declining all week, and our inventory is totally sold out.

Good news is I fixed the problem. The chickens had knocked loose the wire to the auto door. The door was stuck open.  So when the lights turn on at 4am... the ladies head outside through the open door.. but its dark! So the freeze still and go back to sleep until sunup. That shorts. Them enough light to slow egg production.

Usually it only takes a few days for production to climb back up, so this is a temporary problem. Nevertheless we may be short for this week deliveries.
