The circle continues

A few months ago we bought some day old chicks that arrived via the USPS service. They were supposed to be all hens but at least 2 have turned out to be roosters, one of which is very mean and we will be finding a new home for him very soon.

Based on the breeds that we had, I calculated that we should start to see them laying eggs in September but today we found these eggs in the nesting box.

The blue and 2 brown eggs are from our older girls but judging by the really small size of the white one, that’s the first egg from one of the new girls. It will be interesting to see if this is a fluke or if they are starting to go into production mode.

Mr Rob is building them some new luxury apartments down in the old barn, looks like he will also have to step up production.
