The Fifth Egg

The girls (as G fondly calls the chickens) have been doing extremely well, productivity-wise. The last four or five days, it’s been one egg per chicken per day. This is really as good as it gets.

We’re not sure whether this is related to Bob’s new “oatmeal” concoction (crumbles soaked in milk), or the fact that we have been around during the day to pamper them, but we are pretty much awash in eggs.

But today the hens have gone over the top. We collected FIVE eggs today, so someone is definitely trying to show off. Hopefully, they’ll ease up a little — our fridge is only so big. Fifth egg is below, as is a funky picture of Farmer B trying to keep the droppings in check.
