What's better than finding an egg on the coop floor after a month of no eggs? 2 eggs in the nesting box a couple days later.
Monday, my RIR, Ruby, gave us a present, she layed her first egg next to a fake easter egg in the nesting box. Wednesday after work, I found two eggs in the nesting box. That means the Barred Rock, Violet took a cue from her sister-hen and chose to use the box.
This is great. I don't like searching the coop for eggs.
Up next to lay: The white hens. They are about 28 weeks and due any day.
Come on over for breakfast anytime! I will fry up some taters and scramble some eggs for you.
