Also pictured is the hens eating their weekly worm preventative. I mix it with yogurt and they just adore it. The mix of herbs supposedly keeps their insides inhospitable to worms, and so far, I have not had a problem with them.
The news with the flock of Garden Dreams' hens is they are molting, so egg production has fallen off. The shorter days of fall can signal to the hens..."Hey, it's time to loose all your feathers and renew them with new ones so you better stop laying eggs so you will have the nutrient reserves to do it!" So, they look a little scruffy right now. I am glad they are molting now, as a few of them molted in the dead of winter last year and I was worried about their little naked necks in the cold.
That's all I can report from the world of cluckers.
