Eggcellent

Our hens have started laying eggs! Of course, they are overachievers. They are not supposed to lay eggs until about 9 months of age and it has been only 6 months. So we have been scrambling to get roosting boxes setup so that they are not laying eggs on the floor of the coop. However, the eggs are tiny. Is this normal? I guess we’ll see if they get bigger. Sweet. With all this effort, we can now save like $1.50 on eggs per week. Watch out Bill Gates!

    Yes, that’s normal. The size of eggs depends on the kind of chickens you have. We have one that lays jumbo eggs and several that lay smaller eggs.

    We used to have 6 chickens but the skunks have found our pen and keep getting in. The 3 remaining chickens evidently scare the skunk so he hasn’t bothered them, but he gets in and eats the eggs every night if they lay later in the evening.
