Our chickens, like other chickens in the country are starting to lay again. They have had a nice little vacation from laying. They have been on hiatus for the winter months now. Our days have begun to lengthen, they hens are outside more and we don't have much snow. The girls have been going out into the pasture with the sheep, scratching around in the exposed grass. We even have mud for them to play in. This evening we cam across a rather small egg. We don't have young hens. Ours are all two years old so there is no reason for these small eggs. Well, maybe not hen eggs. There is no other explanation besides....the guineas have started to lay.
We had 17 eggs tonight. This little egg fit in the basket with all the other hen fruit. Tiny in comparison.
Do you think anyone will notice the small egg? Should we give 2 for 1?
I guess we will just keep these for ourselves. Thank you hens and guineas. We now have eggs. Breakfast is open.
Blogger is crazy tonight. I don't know what happened. It is blocking all of my text into one or two giant blocks and wont let me change it. This is anoying. I don't like it at all. Hmmm....is this why others are going to different formats? Much love and prayers from Mainely Ewes Farm.
