I’ve written previously that our chickens have been getting idle threats that they are heading to the stew pot if they don’t start laying soon. This threat is made even more idle by the fact that I don’t even eat chicken. When we bought the chickens in August, we were told they’d start laying in a few weeks. Clearly, the chickens were younger than we thought. Nine weeks after getting our chickens, I opened the coop today to find two eggs! Now they actually deserve the big chicken coop/run extension that Derek has been building. This project will be done this weekend and we’ll be sure to post pictures of the “north wing” in a few days.
Update: I had a request to see a picture of the egg yolk. The yolk is much closer to orange than the paler yellow you tend to see in store-bought eggs.
