Egg Day!



Well, we're very proud of our city chickens! Only one egg, so I'm not exactly sure who's the dud, but hopefully, tomorrow there will be two eggs. We shall see.

As Sandra Boynton's chickens would sing it, Glory in eggshells each day-oh!

I also have backyard chickens - 12 of them, actually. The laying cycle is 26-28 hours. So some days you'll have none, others 2. It all depends. Less if it's hot, less if they are molting, less if they are aged. Right now, with the August heat and the feather explosion in their pen, I'm happy with two eggs a day.
