Laying Again

Around Thanksgiving each year my hens begin to molt and kind of "go on strike" for awhile.
Eggs are hard to come by for a few months.
But usually sometime around mid January,
egg production starts up again,
and we can have scrambled eggs for breakfast
whenever we'd like 
and I don't have to ration my eggs for baking.

As a side note, I have been raising chickens for almost three years now.
My original flock started laying in January of 2011,
and in two years of egg production I have needed to buy only three dozen eggs 
to supplement my supply.
And I had free coupons for 2 cartons of them!
