For those of you who follow these pages you know that several months ago I purchased 6 chickens and a rooster. Each day I go to the coop and look for any signs of eggs. Well today I opened the coop and there were 3 eggs perched on the straw! I guess they realized what their job is after all. One of them was broken so I did not keep it but the other 2 are a good size as you can see from the picture. Now I have another reason to head on out to the coop in the morning.
The funny thing is I was just talking to an old time farmer last night and he told me that if they have not started laying they wont start now until the Spring. I guess the really is an exception to every rule.
Off to make an omelet!
