Hens Online

My pullets (teen-aged laying hens) are finally starting to lay eggs.  Yahoo!  I’ve been egg rationing here. But no more!

Currently we have 9 2 yr old birds and 20 pullets.  I purchased the pullets back in September as 3-4 month old birds and feeding them for the past 3 months, expecting them to begin laying ‘any day’.   Fortunately that day is now!  Just in time for real egg nog and kids home on Winter vacation.  We eat a lot of eggs:  fried, scrambled, hard boiled on salads, quiche and fritatas; not to mention the gluten free oddities I have been baking (they don’t really qualify as bread).  Thank you hens, I look forward to your tiny presents, wrapped up in pretty browns and greens!
