it's a miracle!
Our ladies have finally begun laying eggs! I am not going to lie I was a little concerned this may never happen. We kept on asking ourselves what we could be doing wrong, are our chickens actually 10 years old and no longer laying or are they just being snobs. We mostly maintained hope that by spring they would be laying and we would be enjoying them daily. Well on my birthday they gave me the best gift ever, a lovely, huge, brown egg. We were gone every morning and night after for the next few days so finally Saturday morning we enjoyed those lovely eggs. We are consistently getting 1 a day and hoping to get more as it warms up and the days get longer. I have to say the eggs were absolutely delicious. The yolk was a bright orange and they were fluffier than any I'd had before. I still am amazed every morning that these lovely eggs came from my backyard and they are going to keep on coming. So worth all the hard work!!
