Default Ladies... WE HAVE EGGS!!

I was incredibly excited to peek into the bin last week and find our very first egg! It was fricking cold, had probably been there since the day before, but it was perfect! Now roughly a week in (with some of the coldest weather WE'VE had) and I have 2 hens that have suddenly started producing!! I was so shocked, I thought maybe the kids or DH had put it in there to trick me.

Lucy, the lone red hen is making light brown, almost creamy beige eggs. She has made 5 in a a week. She goes back up in the roost after breakfast to lay hers, is that weird? Iggy, one of the French Marans is laying the prettiest speckled chocolate eggs. Hers is usually there first thing in the morning. She's done 3 in 5 days or so. The other 2 girls haven't quite started yet, but I'm really hoping they will soon!

I posted these on FB today, as a friend asked about them. DH has already eaten Lucy's first two, they were perfect.

Getting your first eggs is really eggciting. Ha. The weather here in Buffalo, NY is so cold (negatives) that it's actually exciting every time we get an egg, and they've been laying since September.

Well, the chickens aren't hard... well, we had the whole issue with predators and then the idiot kept giving us roos and not pullets... but once we just had the hens, they aren't high maintenance.

It is egg-citing! I was so totally happy to go find those eggs. I've let a few kids go look, and they are so tickled if they find one. I was very surprised they started laying at all this week, especially being so cold. I figured it would be Spring, at least.
