    Eleanor took the suggestion a little too literally

    Advertisements
    So, since the girls are all new layers and we don't have any established hens in the flock to "seed the nests" for us, I've been using golf balls as *bait eggs* to entice them into the nest boxes when they reach the point of lay (chickens are drawn to places other chickens have already laid eggs - because it indicates that is a safe place to lay). Well, Eleanor took the suggestion a little too literally, because she presented us with this today:


    (that isn't a picture of it on end-it is really that almost perfectly round)

    This is the creative genius -- she is *supposed* to have beautifully feathered feet, but she we had a small feather picking issue arise that targeted our poor feather footed girls They won't come back in fully until their next molt

    Holy schmolies! I want you to blow that egg so you can keep it forever!

    I used to love when hens just started and laid a 1/4 size egg. For some reason, that seemed magical to me.

    This is the first time I've had brahmas (she is a light brahma - that's the color pattern) - and I am absolutely in love with them. They are HUGE, though, it is amazing to me how much bigger and thicker their legs and feet are than even the rooster's - and they aren't quite done growing yet.....which is not always a good thing given they are the biggest lap babies after the orpingtons.
