chicken chronicles-layers


Well, the time is almost here for our girls to start laying as we hit 19 weeks old this month. The excitement is building for the kids as everyone takes a gamble at what day the first egg will come. This has also opened up a barrage of interesting questions from Little B including "Why do eggs come out of butts?" and "Will the eggs taste like poop?".  I think he has a handle on the anatomy part now after some creative drawings of a chicken.
Until the day they start laying, we have started training with golf balls to show them were to lay in the coop (as a tip from a chicken wranglin' friend) and made the switch to organic laying feed as supplement to the free-range eating they do in the yard.
