January cold

The chickens are fully feathered out now that the cold weather has set in. With the days so short and cold weather, they have completely stopped laying eggs. This is normal, although many people give chickens artificial light so that they keep laying all winter. We're following the idea that if they are allowed to take a break in the winter, they will lay eggs for more years.
