Depending on where you live, winter and spring can be quite chilly! I’m still wearing a heavy sweater indoors because I’m constantly feeling cold.
When I drive through the countryside and I see horses, cows and chicken, I wonder how cold they might be? I’ve seen horses with blankets to keep them warm… but what about chickens who need to lay eggs?
Egg production decreases for chickens living in harsh winter conditions, thanks to low temps and limited daylight hours.
New England’s winters can be brutal! So much so that a group of Boston-area retirees have joined forces to knit sweater for chickens.
