4 Eggs In 5 Days

The Layer, sitting on her "nest" under the deck
And this is what she left:
"Come see what we found!!"
Egg #4
Collecting the Egg
"It's still warm!!"
He wants to have his picture taken with every egg we find now
Those white speckles were made when Kaden was holding the cold (from the fridge) egg #2 in his warm hand... interesting, isn't it?? When the eggs are first laid, and warm, they are completely speckled

1st egg: found Sunday a.m., chicken tractor
2nd egg: found Monday a.m. (possibly laid on Saturday?), on the grassy knoll
3rd egg: Tuesday a.m. (possibly laid on Monday), under the deck
4th egg: Tuesday a.m., under the deck
5th egg: Wednesday a.m., in the shed

Did I mention they are SOOOOOOO delicious?!?

Are they "pullet sized"? I wonder if they will roost in the boxes you build after getting used to being "free-layers"....its all very exciting!!

I just found your blog and am excited to find someone else that is raising chickens. We live in Scottsdale AZ and just started raising chickens. We got our first eggs in early Sept. It is so fun. Like your kids mine love it and get so excited every day when we find eggs. I wish we lived in the Northwest so that we could have a decent garden and fruit trees too.

That's great! Can't wait for the day that I can have chickens again.
