She's getting the nest just right.
Round and round, scratching and rearranging the hay.
Until it's just right!
By the end of the day, there were three eggs in this nest box (but not from the same chicken!).
No matter how much hay I put in the nest boxes, they scratch and scratch until they get to the wooden bottom. Go figure!
I think the girls knew I've been
patiently waiting because they actually started laying a month early. Chicken Mama's very happy!
The first few eggs are sometimes bloody. Poor girls!
Their first eggs are rather small but they will gradually get bigger over the next month and become medium to large eggs.
MMMmmm! Now THAT's what I've been waiting for! Deliciously rich and oh so flavorful eggs! If you've never had a farm fresh egg, I encourage you to find some and try them. You'll be glad you did!
