Both parties have been appeased! The strike is finally over!
No, no bus drivers or teachers here on the farm, just some disgruntled chickens. They wanted more daylight. I told them they’d have to take that up with a higher authority. But finally, after months of waiting, the workers are back.
I think the trouble started when my early spring chicks began to molt in their first year of life. Most chickens molt during their second fall. Well, these ladies didn’t begin molting until after Thanksgiving. Which I told them was a bad decision, but do chickens ever listen?!?!
At least they have now made a comeback. I’m not getting a lot of eggs at this point but I didn’t expect that in January anyway.
Now the biggest problem is collecting them from the coop before they freeze!
