The first half dozen . . .

As things go, it seems only appropriate that ONE of the chickens began laying last weekend while we were in Florida. She persists, one egg a day. We've had eight eggs so far! Now, if her coop-mates will only get the right idea!
They're such fluffy, happy girls.

And the eggs are DELICIOUS.
It's terribly gratifying to walk PAST the egg case at the grocery.

My parents owned 2 commercial layer houses when I was a kid...brown eggs are THE BEST! Thanks for the memories!

We've got 22 chickens now---about 5-6 roosters of which half will be stewed---can't wait to start getting eggs.
