I introduced Wolf the pullet to you all yesterday and today I want to introduce you to Wolf the Hen! She layed an egg sometime today. Yea Wolf!
This is what I saw when I checked the nesting boxes this evening.
Later, Ruth put the egg into one of her Grandmother's Buttercup eggcups. Softboiled?
An hour later, I went out to lock the henhouse and turn off the lights and just couldn't resist another look into Wolf's nest. Egg number 2!! This one, however, didn't have a shell. This apparently is common for early eggs. Tomorrow I'll make sure the crushed oyster shell is readily available.
Amy, at Twelve Acres, has chickens the same age as mine. She got an egg yesterday! Way to go Amy!! (actually Amy's hen) ;)
