All time high production

Today was a Saturday so we were able to be around the barn and a little more today. The girls were making quite the noise this morning and we were excited to see who was actually laying eggs. We had an all-time high of 7x today. If you are not familiar with the egg song it is quite a noise.

One of the big exciting news around egg laying is that Lahaina laid her first egg.  She is my silkie bantam and is almost 30 weeks old.  I was prepared she was going to take her time.


Here is a picture of lahaina’s first egg which is much skinnier then all the rest but still about the size of a bantam egg.


Since it was such a nice day out I also finally decided that Lahaina and Bob needed a bath. A few weeks back they were getting pretty dirty and since Bob is white all the dirt shows up pretty good. I was impressed it almost looked like both the chickens enjoyed the warm bath on this sunny warm day.
