We have eggs! My youngest daughter went to the chicken coop this past week and came back inside and said, "Mom, someone is playing a trick on me!" When I asked her why she replied, "There are a ton of eggs outside in the chicken coop." THERE WERE TWENTY-THREE EGGS! No, not a trick -- her chickens began laying eggs and we didn't realize it.
Zach and Melba
Talley won her chicken, named Zach, in a chicken race this year in Melba, Idaho. She also took home one of her cousin's chickens, we named Melba, and they finally began laying! Those little sneaky hens were laying them in a cat carrier that Talley had placed in the coop! Talley never saw them going in the cat carrier so she never checked! WHAT FUN! Those naughty little hens chose the cat carrier to lay -- not the nesting boxes my husband made! They had almost ran out of laying space!
Just thought I would share this funny story!
