New Eggs

leave a comment »

Our newest batch of chickens appear to be coming of age. The hours of daylight have started to noticeably reveal their shift in duration so maybe that is inspiring our young ones to get on with the whole egg-laying process.

Cyndie reported the surprise of finding two little eggs in the nest boxes yesterday. It’s not entirely surprising, since it is right on schedule for their age. The timing for us with this latest brood is just a little off because they were hatched so much later in the year than the first two batches we’ve raised. We are not used to seeing this kind of laying activity in January.

It’s exciting. And a little mind-boggling, when we consider there may soon be around a dozen eggs a day.

If we keep this up, Wintervale may need to start marketing eggs for sale.
