|Spied in the nesting box this morning. This is Summer, doing her part to provide us with these:|
and our Rhode Island Reds, (Plymouth) Barred Rocks, Australorps, and Buff Orpingtons lay the lighter brown eggs. We have a white egg-layer, too- Millie- (I forget what breed she is. Mark would remember) but she has decided to take a break for awhile.
Our hens really slow down in their laying-egg habits during the shorter days of winter, so it's always exciting when the days get longer and we get more eggs.
