Just got home from driving 1282 miles in two days to take my DSS to a job in Alabama. My DSN called me because he was feeding my chickens for me and said: I think there is an egg in one of the nests. I said, yep, there are three marble eggs and one golf ball in the nests. He said, no, this is a little brown one. I said go back and look and make sure and call me back. He called back and said, yep, thought it was an egg, feels like an egg and not like marble. I made him get some bedding and put it in a cup and take it home with him til I could make it home. Wouldn't you know it would happen while I was gone....and then I had to decide if I wanted to post here first or Facebook!!!
Somebody laid this....don't know who.....while I was making that mad trip to Alabama! Had to take a picture of it with a Grade A large egg from the store. And then I had to take a picture of it with a quarter like everyone else did. MY FIRST EGG!!!!! I am a chicken wrangler now and not just the treat meister! Treats: layer pellets, cottage cheese, sometimes yogurt and greens from the store now that my garden is finished. The treats are not much at a time but a little everyday. I just make sure everyone gets some.
Almost all my hens are 23 weeks old. Most are RIR hens. Yeah me!!!! Got eggs?
