When What to Our Wondering Eyes Did Appear

Oscar went out to the coop today to put in a new roost and nest box (since they don’t like the nest boxes we previously got them). While working, he dropped a screw into the bedding below. If he hadn’t he would never have noticed this:

Eager has started laying! What a surprise! I figured the hens wouldn’t start laying until later because of Winter. It looks like she’s laying an egg a day. I cleaned out the bedding last Saturday and put in fresh so she must have started laying on Sunday. She lays brown eggs.

Eager was the first to hatch and is the prettiest and friendliest of the chickens. This is Eager:

What a clever chicken!
