We have decided to start out the year on yet another molt...or maybe its just the dark winter...but only four of our six ladies have kept up laying on a regular basis. Below is our egg in take from January 1 in order of appearance. On that particular day Dolores and Lois decided to sit out.
There may be something slightly kooky about this, but I love that I can identify the which egg came from which chicken.
|January 1, 2014|
- Elsie the Blue Laced Red Wyandotte lays lovely brown, smooth almost round eggs.
- Alma the lighter Blue Laced Red Wyandotte lays a lighter egg with white speckles. (sorry for the poor photography. the speckles do not appear)
- The lighter brown, smooth egg is from my Queen Bee, Marie and finally,
- The granddaddy of all eggs comes from Fran. How does that chicken push out such a large egg?
