As of the last week, both Cleo and Chloe have come "on-line" with their egg laying. As you can see, there is a huge difference in the size of the eggs of a two-year old hen versus a six-month old one. Older hens lay less often, but they lay HUGE eggs. Younger hens lay small-to-medium sized eggs, but those little eggs come almost daily. Ideally there are uses for both sizes. I use the large ones for baking and the small ones for lunches -- hard-boiled eggs and what not.
No matter what, it is definitely nice to be back in the business of daily eggs. I have missed relying on them as a go-to meal whenever we need one.
