Egg production is steadily increasing

Another good bit of news....  We finally have the hens set so that they are again producing consistently.  Some day i will write about all the changes we had to make to get things right again (mostly due to the extreme weather this fall).

We are collecting 90 to 120 eggs per day,  and on target to reach 200 in a couple weeks.  Plus we still have 2 more flocks to set up.  They will produce maybe another 80 eggs per day.  Finally we can fill orders!

The next step is retiring some of the older hens.  We are working on a high tech way of determining which are laying and which are not.  More on that later....
