Golden Eggs

It’s all started from mid March. With the Sun rising the greenhouse became hotter during the day. Approximately in the same time egg production started to drop.

First, both dogs were caught stealing eggs. They reasoned that the eggs were not mentioned in the contract… I had to install a gate to prevent dogs from getting into the shelter.

Then the construction of a rocket stove came with dust, some noise and many people. Chickens actively participated in the construction. They cleaned new excavations from all what can move, tasted construction materials for allergens and entertained the general public.

But even without dog interference eggs didn’t return. It’s not clear why. May be because of the gate? Sharp temperature swings in the greenhouse? Something is missing in the diet (or some extra stuff from the construction)?

Though chicken look happy and active and eat well.
