Our first egg arrived last week and for a few days they appeared every-other day. Then, yesterdays egg was followed by one this morning! I wasn't sure who was laying, until today. Yesterday Mick modified the Chicken Coop adding two beautiful nesting boxes, this morning when I opened the door to let the ladies out all but one came racing outside...then I heard a flutter....out strutted our big Buff Orpington Rita (the one I was worried maybe a Rooster) I lifted the nesting box lid and inside was a lovely, tiny, WARM egg, yeah Rita!
The colour is dramatically different from yesterdays egg, I am hoping we have two girls laying.
Below is a photo of the two eggs laid by my ladies and beside them one out of a dozen I purchased from the farm stand down the road...I can't even imagine the girls producing something that size! Maybe next year
