Here are some photos of the eggs and chickens at our house. Also be sure to check out one of my CommonGround turkey farmers website! http://www.onthebanksofsquawcreek.blogspot.com/
|Our hens lay brown eggs! They lay 1 egg each day. Sometimes|
they get a little lazy and take a day off.
|A hen is a female chicken. They begin laying eggs around 17-21 |
weeks of age, depending on the breed.
|This is a Barred Rock hen. She is one of the kids favorites.|
|Parker is in charge of the egg collecting. He is |
getting better about not breaking as many eggs.
He is still in training.
|Our hen house has nesting boxes for |
the girls (hens) to lay their eggs.
