chicken chronicles-eggs

So there really isn't anything new to report from the girls. Eggs keep rolling out on schedule and we get one from each hen per day. Its kind of fun to see each girl has her own signature egg and I can look at an egg and know which laid the egg. The color, shape, and size is unique to each girl. When looking at the picture below can you tell which eggs belong to the same hen (we have three)?  We have not seen a molt but it could be they finish a full year of laying before the first molt. For the non-chicken readers a molt is when the hen stops laying eggs and looses her feathers to create new ones. The girls seem happy and we definitely like to taste happy eggs.
