Eggs . . . finally!


My six hens have started laying!!!  We are getting two a day – they are not very big, but I am still proud of them.  We have two hens that are supposed to lay colored eggs so I know they haven’t started laying yet.  Can’t wait for that day.

We started out with 9 chicks.  Two were eaten by a snake and out of the 7 left, one turned out to be a rooster and he just had to go – he was just too mean for me!!  Six is what I thought I wanted anyway so it all worked out okay.

I’ll have to post the “chicken tractor” that my husband built for them soon.
