First Post, First Eggs

first eggs ever

So I thought that it would be fitting to start off the new blog with a picture of the first eggs my hens ever laid. These were laid by two hens from my first group of four Blue Leghorn chicks that I bought. They were only three weeks old when I bought them home and I loved them from day 1. They were so cute with their fluffy little bodies and big feet. It was great to see them enjoying their new environment.

These eggs were laid yesterday in a very secret spot in my yard, so secret I almost missed them. I took the two eggs (Leghorns lay white eggs) and the next morning there was another egg, this time a brown one which means that it was laid by a different breed, either one of the Potch Koekoeks or Boschvelds. Because the hens are still young the eggs are a bit smaller than they would be when the hen is older and also the Leghorn is thought of as a medium to small breed so the eggs are also not very large even when they get to their full size.
