The artificial light thing was just something I read. Someone had a link to the studies, but I wasn't interested enough to follow it. Supposedly studies have been done on it and there is a link to increasing "natural" egg poduction and reproductive cancer... which may or may not affect the egg eater, but why take a chance. I guess unless you have a necropsy done you might not ever know what a hen died from, and I certainly am not going to have one done if any of my chickens die
As long as I get enough eggs that I don't need to buy any more, which is a 20 minute drive to the store, I'll be happy. Until they get too old to lay anymore
Then I'll start over.
OK..... I would say logic would dictate the small end comes out first to ease
things along....... So probably the large end.
What I want to know is who found out and why did they want to know?
And who first said, "Lets eat the first thing that falls out of this chicken's butt?
