The ducks are still not laying - the books say they won't start again until mid winter.

The quail have stopped laying also, I don't know why.

About 1/2 the laying hens are molting so their production is down.  Only 4 eggs a day on average.  With 8 hens that is less than ideal.

But one of the cochins left us a tiny gift (we suspect one of the frizzles)  All 5 of them should start laying this month. (although Hubby suspects that the 2 frazzles are roosters  - they don't crow but their posture is more upright than the other hens and they are more assertive.)

Either way I better have more eggs daily in time for holiday baking!
