The Chicken Coop

Chicken Tender Blog 
 
One of our amazing chicken tenders, Laura Hilker, has put together a blog to introduce each of the ladies.

Chickens and Winter
 
The ladies are very seasonal and do not enjoy the colder temps that winter brings. That means our egg production is almost zero. 
 
We've attempted heat lamps in the past and that didn't help much so we are just going to let them go with nature's flow. Eggs will be back in production in late winter/early spring. 
 
Thank you for your patience!
The Westgate Chicken coop is maintained by volunteers and some classes.
