Yesterday I completed my first dozen eggs and there was a surprise in the hen house! THREE eggs! Yup! I think another one of the girls has started laying. Olivia is SUPPOSED to be 27 weeks and Francine and Claudia are supposed to be 35 weeks old. I am beginning to think that the lady was WAY off about their ages when I bought these birds back in May. She had told me they were 8 and 16 weeks old and I am beginning to think they were MUCH younger. The reason being is that Hazel , my only girl not laying, is CLEARLY not 27 weeks old and she and Olivia are supposedly the same age. Anyway I believe Olivia layed her first egg yesterday. When Richie gets up (it’s already 9:15!) we will be having bacon and eggs for breakfast. We were going to have it for dinner earlier in the week but we weren’t able to. I am really looking forward to it.
Here are some pics of my first dozen and some pick of the girls this morning. I tried to get a picture of the “squat” but I guess it was to early in the morning because they werent being very cooperative.
In this picture you can see Hazel. It is a little hard to see but her comb is still much smaller and lighter in color than the other girls. I guess she is just a late bloomer!
I have a few other posts in the works, so keep checking back. My September Book List will be up late Tuesday. I am also gonna try to get some pics of my new art room posted now that I finally have some student work posted.
