    My chooks Feathers and Eggie have started laying! Feathers has a nest behind our chicken house, Eggie has a nest under a grape vine. We ate some of their eggs, and the yolks were bright yellow and tasted of pumpkin.

    The nests are so cute. they have leaves and feathers in them.

    It's really strange though, because Eggie has layed everyday but feathers has stopped laying for the past few days. Is there something wrong with her?

    I would really try to get them to use the nesting boxes in the coop. It make find eggs a ton easier.
    She could just be laying them elsewhere.

    Congrats on your first eggs. My hens when they first started to lay eggs it was kinda irregular.
