We eat a lot of eggs at our house. Not much meat, fish only really. But we eat a lot of eggs. So we have been trying to figure out how to get these lovely ladies below to lay. There are 4 of them. Who wouldn't stand together for their photo shoot. They are getting really friendly, and demanding about their feeding schedule. And they frequently eat my worms from my compost pile.
Prepare for funny story: About two weeks ago we started getting an egg here and an egg there. The first ones were underneath the chicken coop, and a weird whitish color. We moved some of the first eggs into the chicken coop to try and convince the chickens to lay. Pretty soon we started getting eggs more regularly. Then about a week and half ago now we started getting 5 eggs a day. We have 4 chickens. Chickens lay an egg every 25 hours. One of the eggs was always white. And we have a duck. Who had obviously been laying in the chicken coop.
