We've got three laying now--of the four hens. I love when I find them still warm. The first eggs they lay are really small and get progressively bigger. I got a huge one the other day with a double yolk. Twins! Sometimes they lay too hard (despite Dr. Gooch's efforts to add extra padding in the boxes) and crack the little eggs. They flock around me when I go out with a scoop of scratch. They love their scratch (cracked corn). It is one of Avery's beloved chores. I love our chickens. I could sit and watch them all day. But, then, who would do the laundry? My mom would. My Mom lives with me, which is probably even cooler than having chickens.
