Lay My Laydies

We came back from vacationing over the fourth of July to a wonderful surprise. Eggs! Lots and lots of eggs. Those baby pullets finally grew up and started producing eggs. Yea! I've been having to buy eggs from the grocery store again (think of it!) and am so glad to halt that. Now something I don't remember with the first batch of hens was how small the eggs are when they start laying. These are tiny little eggs. I'm guessing as they grow so do the eggs. It's ok with me, I just have two tiny fried eggs in the morning rather than one large egg. I've been thanking my "laydies" by giving them a head of cabbage a week plus all the kitchen scraps I can stockpile.
