honestly, i didn't expect to see any egg until mid August ?

yet.. here it is.. right in the run! all the hard work for the last 3+ months .. finally!!

i guess it's time to switch from starter feed to layer feed..

not sure which chicken the egg was from though.

3 eggs so far

but it looks like only one of my hens is laying..

true.. it's getting bigger :)

they are still on starter feed..but no problem with the egg shells thus far.. which is kind of interesting.

i think i can keep them on starter feed until i'm done with the rest of the starter feed before switching over to layer feed..

i do let them free roaming around my backyard for 1-2 hours a day..so i think they got the calcium from somewhere...


left to right -> day 3 , 2 and 1

this is odd..

after getting 4 eggs (1 each day), i thought there will be another one today.....

i checked in the coop and run ..but nothing

maybe the heat is the problem?

July and August are the hottest months here..
