I guess the chickens don’t know it’s still winter (and probably will be for the next 6 months by the feel of it…) as they’re laying like gangbusters now! Found this egg basket (it has handles) on eBay a little while back.
We will have even more eggs in a few months as we have more baby chicks on the way beginning of May. More Ameraucanas for green eggs, Buff Orpingtons, Buff Brahmas, Dark Brahmas, Black Australorps. I like some of these larger, docile varieties – they are beautiful to look at and it’s nice to pick up a chicken and not have her squawk too much!
