On Christmas day my mom gifted me a bright red egg basket. Two days later my hen Fred gifted me her first egg! Then a few days later her sister, Freddy, started laying. Here they are (Freddy on the left and Fred on the right) when I got them from our local livestock auction. The chick in the middle turned out to be a rooster. I'm not sure what breed these hens are. Any ideas? Fred now Freddy And here are their eggs: Fred's are on top and Freddy's are on the bottom. Going out to the coop and getting their eggs each afternoon is very rewarding. I can't wait for the rest of the hens to start laying too.
