The other day I went out to Hotel Nestington to take care of the ladies, and I found a huge surprise. Sable, our black chicken is a pretty big girl and her eggs reflect that. This egg however was in a nest with one of Gloria’s. Instantly the two cords that make up the Jaws theme song popped into my head. Peggy’s chickens may be laying a couple dozen eggs a day, but my ladies are laying eggs triple the normal size.
Although, sometimes, like yesterday, they get in a bit of a hurry. Flame laid her egg up on the roost and forgot the egg shell. As I was scooping out the frozen pooh I had to scrap up a loose partial frozen egg as well. Flame might be an eager layer and needs to slow down to make the shell before she sends the egg out. But, hey at least she is trying, right?
