The last time I wrote about my hens I was having a hard time with the cost of raising backyards chickens. I had just bought $50 worth of feed and was getting very little if any eggs. Thankfully that has turned around and I have been getting 4-7 eggs per day from 7 hens.
Yes, only 7 hens is what I have left. I lost another bird last week. This bird is the last of my original 9 from the Spring of 2010 when I first started keeping chickens. My last white Brahma. I am left with 6 Plymouth Rocks and 1 Rhoade Island Red.
The birds have been laying really well the last few weeks. Like I said I have been getting 4-7 eggs each day. I have gotten some pretty interesting eggs as well. Every once in awhile I get a doozy. One that when I see it all I can think of is "ouch". That was this one.
This egg was just the opposite It was about the size of a robins egg.
