First Egg!

We have our first egg!

The question is, who laid it?
3 of my chickens are 5 months this week and
2 are 4 1/2 months.
 I didn't see any nesting going on so I have no clue.
I finally have a hen!
Hubby had it timed just right…
he finished the nesting boxes last weekend!
Sweet little thing!

Have an egg~citing day!

Love it! It's so much fun to find eggs! My hens free range all the time so finding mine is like an Easter egg hunt..:) Have a great day!

Your chicken yard is soooooooo clean. How do you do it? I have 5 chickens also and would have to be cleaning it all the time to make it look that good.
Love your chicken posts.

OMGosh, how exciting!! I had better get my nesting boxes back in the coop.

I got 6 chickens and 3 were roosters. I am keeping one but that may not last long if he gets mean.

Have you started using layer feed yet? And oyster shells?

Hello Karen!

Yep, you better hurry up because you are just behind me with those nesting box's! The day I get my first egg I change over to layer feed & some oyster shells. We are in business now!

Hugs,
Maryjane
