    Winter is almost here and today we found two eggs in the coop! One was a a normal size and the other was a small one. I went back out to get the eggs and within those five minutes the large one was smashed. I figure one stepped on it or pecked at it. The other was fine but tiny hehe

    I opened up the nesting houses and stuffed them with shavings. Hopefully since two are laying they start producing, even the rooster was singing this morning hahah

    Out of the 12 hens I'm not sure who laid the two eggs. Most of them are pretty red and going on their 20th week.

    Exciting!!!

    Yay! I started getting eggs a weeks ago! I only have one girl laying and she started at 19 weeks!
    I also found out that she had been hiding a nest before I even knew she was laying! (there were five eggs in it)
    Here's a link that helped me figure out who was laying.
