    I suddenly noticed that my Wyandotte's comb and wattles have turned red! Below are comparison photos from last month and today. I think that I'll be finding some extra eggs soon! Although I have six laying hens, the Wyandotte is one of five pullets that I raised from two-day-old chicks this summer. (The laying hens I bought as adults last winter.) I haven't been through this excitement before.

    She's been investigating the nest box, but haven't seen her squat yet. Hm, I wonder if she'll announce it to the world when she does lay. Now with the cold weather, I don't always hear about it because my windows are closed.

    Congrats! I'm with you, it is sooooo egg-citing! I've had laying hens now for several years, and I STILL get excited to get the eggs! Have fun!
