    Just went out to give the girls a treat and found these. [​IMG]
    All must have laid between this morning and just a while ago. One was still warm and I found it in the feed dish. [​IMG] Another was on top of the nest box and two more were below it. Some ladies need to learn to use the nest box!

    Anyway...Forget groundhogs day...when the hens start to lay, Spring is on it's way! Lol, how do you all like that little prose?

    Just a little brag. [​IMG] A well deserved one, having only gotten one or two eggs every other day, I needed this. I was out of eggs, too.
    Yay hens!

    Thank you!
    I am sick of of buying store eggs, too. I bought some free-range organic eggs that said they were from NH, but even those are weak compared to what my girls lay. Even my DH commented on how much better our eggs taste.

    Quote:The blue and green ones come from Easter Eggers. The pinkish colored one is from a Phoenix, but I do have EE's that lay that same color. The brown is from my BSL, who has been the only girl laying for the most part besides Hazel who will give me one every once in a while.

    Funny, I just got off the phone with my sister and I told her I got a green and a blue egg today and she was like " What are you going to do with those? Can you eat those?" I couldn't help it...I laughed at her. Not very sisterly of me, but sometimes i think we didn't grow up in the same house.
