Here are the barnyard inspectors, checking the stability of the siding girts of the barn addition. These kids are going on 4 months old, and should start laying any time. Unfortunately they like to lay in places they shouldn’t, as the next picture illustrates.
Can you spot the 2 eggs in this picture? (Hint: click on the picture for a larger version.) One is from a Sussex hen, and we think a Black Star (i.e. Peeps or Poops) is laying too. We’re planning to put up some netting to keep them out, so we don’t lose egg production to hay mow accidents.
