We tried to get the chickens to lay eggs in January. They normally don't lay as many eggs in January since it's dark and cold. Like Sweden. We tried light therapy, giving them wooden eggs to sit on, reading them poetry, showing them anatomically accurate Youtube videos of chickens producing salable sized eggs with minimal shell defects, and gently massaging the chickens over top of the egg laying boxes.
We stand firmly behind economists that subsidies will encourage specific behavior, which may have unintended side effects. So we decided to raise our chickens on a diet that is free of corn and soy. Our chicken feed is 100% organic all natural corn free, soy free, GMO free, bits of delicious chicken dinner. They love it. And they look good eating it too.
Further, chickens, like DJs, like to scratch. Both records and piles of wood chips. We faced the challenge of putting our chickens out to pasture in a way that allows them to dig around and be happy chickens, and also allows us farmers to periodically move them to new pasture land. We needed something that was a large chicken coop on wheels... something like... a $200 RV from Craigslist. That's right. That looks like a chicken coop to us.
After a year of herding birds and collecting eggs, we decided that what we needed was even more chickens. So we collected our top 200 eggs and put them in an incubator. The incubator was a plastic tote we had to rotate 6 times a day. After just the right number of days, out of the eggs popped... tiny dino-errr.. chickens! And such it was that we turned 200 eggs into 130 chickens! Magic!
