Little chick Horace, taken last February.
Well, Horace grew up. As did our other chicks.
And we waited. And waited and waited.
Finally, after all that waiting, we discovered this under the porch:
The eggs start out quite small, and get larger over time.
In the beginning, they might only lay 1 egg every few days, but over time, they begin to lay almost every day.
Eggs from free range chickens are richer in nutrients than those from confined chickens.
The yolks of our eggs are the deepest, richest yellow I've ever seen.
Good chickens :-)
