Do you see these eggs? Notice that they are three different colors! Do you know what that means? It means that Effie, who hasn't laid an egg since she started molting last September, is laying eggs again. I'm so stinking happy about this. I have no intentions of eating my chickens (they have names!), even when they stop laying. However, I was not happy about the fact that Effie may live another 6-7 years without producing anything for us. So stoked to see her pretty blue eggs again.
It also means that Flo is laying eggs in the coop again. I posted a few weeks back that we couldn't find her eggs. Last week I was in the coop and saw both Effie and Flo in their nesting boxes. Effie popped out, walked over to Flo and proceeded to peck the crap out of her until Flo flew the coop so to speak. I'm guessing this is why Flo started laying other places. She now waits until Effie is out of the way and busy in another part of the yard before she lays in the coop. Now we know who's on top of the pecking order. We've got eggs coming out of our ears again and it's definitely a good thing.
We've got lettuce coming out of our ears too and I have the cutest little helper who likes to pick it with me.
