When Chickens Go On Strike

For the last 4 months we've been getting grass-fed beef and organic chicken, eggs, and butter from a Minnesota farm out west. We were cruising along fine until today. We knew that sometimes when you live dependent on the farmers around you things aren't always as convenient as at the grocery store. We learned that today. As I went to our local pick-up site, I noticed that our 2 dozen eggs were nowhere to be found. A gentleman who works at our pick-up site told me the hens are currently not laying or laying very little. He said they believe the weather is affecting their ability to lay as abundantly as the hens have been.:(

OK, I haven't had eggs in a couple days, and I was really looking forward to breakfast tomorrow. Now what to do? But it sure is a nice lesson that you can't always have what you want when you want it. Now isn't life just like that?!
