At least two of our new hens have started laying eggs. It will be a few more weeks until the eggs are up to full size, but for first eggs they are bigger than I was expecting to see. We will be so glad to go back to fresh eggs from free range hens!
In other news, today is day 141 for Tsunami and she is acting very much like she is ready to be done with the kids kicking her ribs. Unfortunately temps are barely above freezing at 10am this morning so we will have to keep a close eye on her as babies born in these temps run the distinct risk of getting frost bite before she could get them clean and dry on her own. And that means I may very well find myself sleeping in the barn tonight in a sleeping bag that is only rated to 40 degrees! Can you say COLD!
Here is Tsunami a few days ago after her maternity trim - something she was less than thrilled to participate in.
