I said "HEY" and everyone stopped being hystericle and we had peace once again.
I finished dressing the grandkids and we all headed outside to work on building a walkway to the coop. Shortly afterwards we heard the white rock hen Cracker, aka "DRAMA QUEEN", announce that she had laid her egg. With the days being shorter, she now lays an egg about every 2 or 3 days, but she is very very proud or it really really hurts.
So we stop what we are doing and we go to gather the egg, and woe and behold what do we see? TWO EGGS! One is very warm and just laid and one is all cooled off.
One of my other girls is finally laying!
BYC old farmer dude knows his stuff... I took his advice and started the girls on Calf Manna just days before we had our Chicken Pox (avian pox) outbreak and then I continued the high protein diet with scrambled eggs along with the calf manna... wow!
Woo Hoo Someone laid their FIRST EGG!
The one on the left is Crackers standard egg,
the new egg is slightly smaller but o so AWESOME!
