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.


  1. Ahhhhh how wonderful. I'd imagine the thrill of gathering your own eggs never really wanes. And...your floor looks great! It has such a lovely tone.

    1. Thank you! It always looks this good....on cleaning day, haha. You will love keeping chickens one day, I know it, and my guess is you'll be quite good at it!
