The chickens, now about 19 weeks old, had been acting kind of strangely for about a week — spending good portions of the day in the henhouse, despite the heat. They seemed to be exploring the two nestboxes with more frequency. Then I went away for a few days, and when I came back, I looked in the nestboxes, and saw two eggs!
So I fried them up for a small snack (the eggs are rather small), and they were delicious. Over the past 3 days, they’ve laid 2 more eggs. I think only one of the chickens is laying right now, but I think all 4 are going into the henhouse while the laying is going on. So I can’t wait until all 4 start laying. Then it will be time to break out the egg recipes!
