So Many Eggs!

Glorious cardboard treasure chest!

Our flock of eleven is laying an average of six
eggs a day!
Many people report that their hens stop laying
for the winter but our birds have recovered
from their molt and are laying like crazy!
Kooshie and Turtle are both giving us green
eggs, Juliana is supplying pale cream eggs
and everyone else lays various shades of brown.

  1. There is something satisfying about getting a nice bunch of eggs from hens like in your picture. My six girls are giving me an average of four+ eggs a day and have been doing so for some time now. I like the green eggs, when I was a teen I had hens that gave me green and blue eggs, at that time no one ever heard of such a thing, everyone thought I was colouring the eggs and would not believe me.
    Your Snowneck is a pretty hen!
