Just 1

Yearly count: 16

I guess most of the girls are taking Sunday off. Just one brown egg today.


A handful for Saturday!

Yearly count: 15

One this morning

Four this afternoon. I cleaned ur the coop today and moved the stone up one next. Three eggs from this afternoon were laid in that next. I has stopped them from laying in the dirt. It is remarkable.

Dirty finds 4

Yearly count: 10

Three eggs in the bottom left nest.  This is looking like a favorite spot for the girls.

One more hiding in the nest right above that.

3 IS the magic number

Wednesday afternoon we got 3 eggs!  All of them where in the coop.  Hopefully the girls will keep laying there.  They are in and out of the coop and nesting boxes all day.

We are almost positive the brown egg is from The Enforcer, a Black Sex-Link. I'm guessing that two of the Brown Leghorns are laying now. The play follow the leader in and out of the coop all morning.

Yearly count: 6

Dirty finds 2

No eggs Monday but Dirty found 2 eggs today.  A white one in the dirt and a brown one in the nests.  The white eggs are from one of the brown leghorns, but I don't know which of the 3.  We're not sure which hen laid the brown one.  We have 3 different breeds that will lay brown eggs for us.

Yearly count: 3  =]

The count starts

We've been waiting since June 11 for these jokers. Today we finally had the first egg laid.

Of course it was in the dirt where the house of cards was but an egg is an egg and I am stoked! Let the counting begin.

1 for those keeping track. =]
