chicken problems


Not original. I pinched this off one of the many chicken groups of which I am an unashamed member.

I think all the eggs I’m getting from the new girls are coming from Jenny. She’s the only one I ever see on the nest. But damn, she churns one out almost every day. She’s the one that looks most like Lucia, too, so it’s no surprise she’s a superstar.

All my little peckerheads are doing well and loving the Summer.

Another weekend of good stuff lined up. I’ll report back next week. Have a good one!

Are the old girls producing?

One a day? That’s a lot of work for such a small creature. How big are the eggs?

Eggs are massively on sale around here – $0.79/dozen for extra-large (50 gram). Cranking one of those out in a single day???

Little girls make little eggs. Smaller than a small hen’s egg.

The big girls, all together, lay as much as Jenny. Not quite one a day. But that’s how it works – the older they get, the fewer eggs they lay, but the eggs get bigger.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
