Gift In the Nest Box
Guess who laid the first egg…
- Proud “Big Mama”, one of our two Barred Rock hens, earned her name by laying our first egg!!
She even did it in the right spot!!! But as you can see, she scratched all the straw out of the way and plopped it right onto the hardwood floor…which made a teeny crack in the shell. Anybody out there have this same problem, or any solutions for me. I’ve been putting more straw in the boxes but they’re dragging it out into the hen-house.
It was a pretty good size egg! I would say at least a med egg you’d get from the store, maybe even a large.
Thanks big mama!!
So what do you think Bubba?
