Egg update

24 06 2013

It’s been almost a week since our first hen began laying. We’ve had six beautiful blue eggs from her and yesterday our sliver laced wyandotte layed her first egg! I snapped a quick pic with the two laying hens and each of their first eggs.

6.23.13 eggs

The eggs are still a little on the small side, but I’ve already seen an increase in size from our ameraucana over the last week. It’s quite a delight to watch the hens settle into the nest to lay the eggs, adjusting the nesting material to suit their needs.

I’m a little surprised our buff orpington isn’t laying, as she’s the oldest in the flock by two weeks. She’s not showing any signs of laying anytime soon either. Maybe she’s just a bit of a late bloomer?
