29 Jul

I’m so excited! I just went out to change the chicken’s water in the coop and just as I lifted out the waterer I caught a glimpse of something out of the corner of my eye. EGGS!!!! Two beautiful little brown eggs. The first ones. I don’t know which girls were the layers, but I enthusiastically thanked them all. Very, very cool. They are 17 weeks today. The books say they’ll lay between 18 and 20 weeks. Obviously mine are highly advanced 🙂

I hope this is the beginning of many, many eggs. Of course, the did NOT use the nesting box, just on the floor of the coop despite my decoy eggs I’ve had in the boxes for months. I cleaned out all three nesting boxes and put in fresh bedding and strategically placed the eggs dead center and in eye shot so they’d get the hint. We’ll see if the do. At least I know where to look tomorrow!

Farm out.
