Waiting patiently for my first egg. This morning when I let the girls out I found my first egg broken on the coop floor. I prepared the nesting boxes in advance and could see where someone had been sitting in one of them.They free range all day so I have been searching the yard just in case. I'm not sure what else to do. There are clean pine shavings everywhere including the nesting boxes. I am pretty sure that my little Snow White is my first layer. Here she is with fresh blackberries on her little face.
