One of the main reasons we wanted to get chickens were for their eggs. I mean, who doesn't want a fresher, tastier, healthier egg?
The first day we brought our girls home, we had an egg!
And we had fresh eggs every day since! We've had between 1 and 5 eggs every day. It wasn't long before we had a bowl full of eggs!
Last Wednesday, I started a log to keep track of our egg production. Since that time, we've had 25 eggs in 8 days. So, we've averaged a little over 3 eggs a day! One of those was a double yoked egg!
We've switched to storing them in an egg carton, and I we make sure we rotate our stock eating the oldest eggs first. It's really working out pretty well.
We've really enjoyed the chickens. Now, if they'll just grow back their feathers, I could take so much better pictures of them!
