Remember back in late June when I had nine of twelve baby chicks hatch from green eggs??
Well, I just got back from the henhouse and I am thrilled. Finally after six months, the little pips have grown into full grown hens and I got my first green egg from one of them. I can only hope that the other five of the hens will start laying too. I kept two of their brothers and one brother went in the freezer. I was really beginning to think there were not going to produce. Here’s what I got from the nests a few minutes ago.
It’s somewhat smaller than the rest but that’s normal for the first few eggs. They will be larger as time goes on. I’m one happy farmer today!! I hope she was as happy as I am. 🙂
