It's Easter and I've got no eggs
Autumn is that time of the year when the chooker moles molt. It's their off season in egg production when they lose and then grow new feathers and slacken off in the egg production department.
We have 5 mature chooker moles and 6 point of lay (new ones who are about to start laying) but I'm only getting one egg a day from Louise (short for "Geez Louise, you're a big chicken").
MOTH is beside himself, unable to supply at work.
What else can I do to make them happier so they will lay more eggs? I built them a bloody palace, they free range every day, their feeders are always full, they get all of our food scraps (except the ones they're not allowed)... fussy!
PS Kerri and Kelly, here's MOTH's hummus recipe...
