06:40, 74F, overcast, drizzling. roosters carrying on. got no water. ran out to pump and the pipe between well and tank was cracked and spewing water while pump was grinding away. ran inside and shut the pump off. glad I sold those lambs otherwise I would have to give the pump guy one for the bill. his wife has goats.. oh well (no pun intended) it's just a pipe. hoping the pump is o.k. (sigh.)
15:30, 78F, raining on and off all day. seems the water tank shifted and cracked the seal on the pipe going into it. pump guy had to leave his hunting camp and come out here to work in the rain.. but it's fixed. did chores in between showers. no eggs. put hay in the sheep barn since they prefer staying dry to grazing in the rain.
17:30, 78F, overcast, muggy. did chores early.
19:50, 76F, overcast. a mizzle. last dog walk until tomorrow. no stars at all.

it's the length of the day - the days get shorter and chickens lay fewer eggs. my chickens are molting, too. growing new feathers is demanding on the system. as soon as the winter solstice goes by, the chickens will lay better with increasing daylight.

I was steady on the eggs til the other day. Mine are faltering a little with the rain or something.
