Day 20.

The ladies turned 21 weeks old today. Did they lay an egg in celebration? No, they did not.

They have been staying outside so much more now that it’s pretty chilly out. We connected their normal run to the garden so they can tear that up for us a little bit. Notice the cuddle puddle in the far left corner- those are my Brahmas

I expect my first egg to be laid over there instead of a nesting box, but what do I know:confused:

i absolutely loved reading your posts about your girls! they are so very pretty. i have three girls and one has laid so far, have gotten an egg daily for the past 10 days! i’ve actually watched her lay a couple of them, it’s quite neat. i’m still waiting on the other two girls to lay, their faces are getting quite red. they are around 24 weeks now i believe? the waiting game feels so long
