During the winter months, egg production drops off, but I've never had it stop for more than a few days. So, today my quest was to determine if the hens were laying eggs.
Before laying an egg, a hen will settle into a nest for 15 or 30 minutes or so.
Today, I didn't let the chickens out of the hen house, but I checked in on them every 30 minutes or so.
Never did I see one in a nesting box.
Tomorrow, we will proceed to plan B.

Last year, a sheep farmer told me that he spotted a dandelion during every month of the year.
They didn't take long to bloom once the snow melted this week.
