More eggs!

This is not going to be the Egg Chronicles (I swear), but we are just too thrilled at the moment (I didn’t imagine it would be quite this exciting). This morning we collected three eggs (one from a Dominique and two from RI Reds). One of the RI Reds is laying really long skinny eggs that have two yolks (we know because we scrambled them all for lunch). This afternoon I happened to check the nesting boxes again and there was another egg! Smaller, so it must be a fourth hen starting to lay. At our friend Marguerite’s advice we are not letting them loose until late morning (to encourage laying in the nesting boxes and not outside); the afternoon-laying hen throws off that strategy, but hopefully she will continue to go inside when she is ready.

I suppose the excitement will wear off…but not yet!
