This year we are facing what would be described as bad weather everywhere.The north east region where my farm is has seen great weather the last three years but the racoon population density has finally gotten so high that few eggs are hatched and as such every year there are fewer hens left to try and hatch a egg.The first floods in 4 years . At least my farm will have a better chance because the racoon was beaten back the last 2 years and my farms production ran circles around the region. So far i have seen lone hens without a sighting of chicks but when i had zero production the 2 years before killing tons of egg suckers the old maid hens ran in groups without any chicks.It appears the quail have done pretty well here.
