Finally, our chickens produced! Wu-hu!
We got 9 eggs! 7 from our second group of hens and 2 from the first. They are the same age/ breed (except the first group has 2 Americanas. The Americanas lay colored eggs). I think the difference is the coop. The second group live in the coop we built, which has covered nest areas.We are in the process in building another one so hopefully the original hens will feel more comfortable laying. The 2 dirty eggs (one brown and one green) are from the original hens. which laid them on the ground.
We went inside and ate them for breakfast. They have a stronger taste than store bought eggs (the yolk).
double yoke- twins!
