I just came in from my rounds of checking on the chickens. I'd say egg collecting but I hadn't gotten a single egg in two months. I went in the Araucana coop and my one little hen was in the nest box. She was standing really funny and breathing very heavily. I saw an egg in the box, so I was first thrilled with the egg, but then worried that something was wrong with her. I said "Oh little hen are you ok" over and over, and I'm starting to get worried. Then all of a sudden I heard a tiny little "thud". She popped out a little egg right in front of me, hops out of the nest box and goes on her merry little way. It's the very first egg she has ever laid, for me at least. There I was worrying over nothing. So anyway, I got three eggs today. Here they are, aren't they pretty. Oh and the brown egg is a buff orpington egg.
