Well, a little of the ‘country’ just returned to our home today. One of our pullets have laid their first egg!
It’s always exciting to see little chickens grow and then turn out their first ones. You can’t see it in the video but those earlier eggs aren’t full-size. It takes a few goes to build up to the size we know are chicken eggs.
The best thing about it is that this one was laid where we wanted it, right in the nesting box with the lifting lid! I wasn’t sure if they’d take to it right away or lay them on the ground in the hen house. You never can tell what chickens will do. BUT THEY ARE DOING IT RIGHT!
That’s all. Go back to work.
