Lost their appetite?

The ladies seem to have lost their appetite. They've been eating about 1/5th of what had become their piggy norm. They're still all over the scraps we give them, but barely touch their food. What gives? Any chicken-folk out there that can set our minds at ease? Or do we have anorexic hens!?


  1. Hmmm, maybe give them a little more heat? Were they better today with the warmer weather?

    You have an award waiting at my blog!

  2. Hi! Todd Mills from Local Matters told me about your blog. I have four hens in Clintonville.

    Our girls have been eating a little less these days but I think it's because they 1) decided snow isn't evil and 2) discovered the bird seed spilled by squirrels out of our feeders.
