Happy Hens

We’re up to three eggs a day! The hens are 21 weeks old, and we expect to have an abundance of eggs soon. Martha (a barred rock hen), Scarlet (a rhodie), and one of the ameraucanas have been laying one egg each day. The blue eggs have a gorgeous tint and are larger than the other two so far.  Scarlet has been laying the darker brown, rounder eggs.IMG_1546There’s little that pleases me as much as a bunch of beautiful eggs in the nesting boxes, then in my fridge.
