When I gathered the eggs this evening, I got a little too excited. Miss Jade thought I was losing it. Again.... I opened the egg door and she heard my, "Whoo hoo! Awesome!!". I caught a sideways glance from her and I had to explain.
Today, we got the very first egg from this years Barred Rock pullets! Six months ago we brought home thirty five baby chicks and raised them in the garage until they were big enough to move out to the barn. We fussed over them and were saddened when we lost one here and there. Finally all that care and coddling is starting to pay off. They're hens now, beautiful and proud.
Until next time,
