I am pleased to announce that this is what we're finding in our nesting boxes at the end of the day! After a few years of selecting chicks each spring with egg color in mind, our girls are collectively laying an egg rainbow. That tiny one on the right is from one of our bantam hens who occasionally produces a miniature egg.
Not only is it exciting to get this many different colors of eggs, but we are just thrilled to be getting eggs at all. There have been some sneaky, secret egg stashes going on in the woods above our chicken coop for a long time. We have tried everything from building a fancy new nesting box to putting those ceramic eggs in there. Finally what seems to be working is letting them out later in the morning on the days that I can and hoping the good habit will stick on the days that I can't.
Diversity is beautiful and delicious!
