Congratulations on your first ever eggs! I’ve kept eggs in a basket on the wall in my kitchen for a month plus with no issues. Nothing will grow in there.I'm sitting here enjoying the omelet. I was afraid to let them sit too long because something might start developing in the eggs. These do not taste like store bought eggs! They're better.
But no new eggs this morning.
You will likely find they’ll lay at different times of day as things go on. It takes roughly 25 hours from one egg to the next so if Monday a hen lays an egg at 0600, then Friday it’ll be around 1000 when she lays. By the next Friday it’ll be around 1700 and so on.Thanks for that useful info. And--Henrietta laid another egg this afternoon! Woo-hoo! She's a few months older than the other two pullets.
I thought chickens were supposed to lay eggs in the mornings, but apparently she hasn't read the chicken rule book.
