Encouraging Grass and Fern Growth in a Wooded Area

How can I tell when a hen is not laying anymore?

What is the best way to tell whether a hen is not laying anymore? During early summer, I tried culling hens with brighter yellow legs, and I left the ones with white legs. But my egg production went way down. The "fingers between the pelvic bones" method yielded mixed results, and all the hens seemed to be about the same. Our poultry butcher said to wear a latex glove and insert a finger into the vent. If only one finger fits, the hen is not laying eggs. If two fingers fit, the hen is laying eggs. We have heritage hens, and there are some that are still laying well at 4 years, so I do not want to do a blanket slaughter of all hens of a certain age rather than checking individually. If some of the older hens are laying well, I want those genetics in my flock to pass on to the chicks. Thank you! We have Delaware chickens.

Flowering crabapple

Each year when our flowering crabapple tree has put on new foliage and just begins to bloom, most of the leaves and flowers wither and fall off. The tree looks completely dead for quite awhile and then puts on new leaves again. What can we do to prevent this from occurring?

What are these larvae going to turn into?

I found these larvae alive in a douglas fir log that had been felled in the area of north east Hillsboro and had been on the ground for around 2 years. I would like to use this as an interior post and I want to know what I should do to eradicate these bugs so that they don't emerge inside the house after it is installed. I have included a couple pictures of the larvae which ranged in length from 3/16" up to almost 3/4".
