new eggs

new eggs, originally uploaded by hep.

since huevo is a bantam hen her eggs are slightly smaller than store bought AA or AAA eggs. She just laid this one fresh at noon today. I have to clear most of the eggs from her nest or she might start going broody this weekend. Yesterday was too dark and cloudy for her to lay. If chickens don't get enough sunlight or sunlight-like light they won't lay. Later this summer we are going to add another room onto their coop with lighting for the rainy winter months.
