Another milestone this week at Tulipwood! The gals are starting to lay eggs! Can you believe it? It feels like just a few months ago that I was posting pictures of these tiny little things, and they are now laying eggs? Well, at least one of them is…. and they are very tiny. Look at them compared to one of Lucy’s eggs:
They are called pullet eggs, and are the first eggs that young hens lay… it’s Mother Nature’s way of getting them used to laying eggs…easing them into it. They usually don’t contain a yolk… they’re just for practice.
So one of these Rhode Island Reds has been practicing, once a day… but which one?
I went to the chicken coop to ask, but no one was talking.
In fact, they kind of gave me a dirty look.
