These Eggs are in my spoon rest! Little pewees! πŸ™‚

For those of you keeping up, our middles are 14 weeks old today. One of them laid an egg yesterday! Wow, talk about an unexpected surprise! We were preparing for it in a few weeks. I had to scramble and put a couple nesting boxes in the hoop house fast. I put a milk crate nesting box in where I found the egg and they tipped it over and played with the straw! So I fixed it back up and moved the box and of course found another egg in the exact same place this morning! Now the box is back as close to where she (they?) are laying as I can get it. We’ve got a lot of work to do this weekend to get permanent boxes up, and calcium and grit feeders made for them. We’ve got new layers! Let the excitement begin!

  1. Yay! First eggs are egg-citing. My littles are now 13 and 15 weeks old so probably still 6 or 7 weeks out. They are Buff Orpingtons and are kind of late layers.
