Good job, um, Eva, Ethel, Lucy or Maggie!
Yeah: we got our first Kentucky egg! I took it and then Mother Hen jumped up to the nest to look for it. I felt a little guilty except I know she will forget in about 2 seconds. (If she gets depressed, I guess I'll know she's the broody one!)
See how nice and high this sits up? That's a good fresh egg! Nothing better. Except now I need more chickens...
I'm redesigning this coop, too, so don't copy it. Many little details not quite right. For starters, it's nowhere near big enough! I was reading yesterday that even cage-free chickens will peck when confined. One of the hens is kind of a bully to the others and is always marching up and down by the fence looking to escape. She wants to roam. I don't blame her! After all, our three brown hens in Costa Rica were all over that big 100 x 100 lot all day... how can four chickens make do with a 30' run?
Working on that... I'll keep you posted. Gotta go eat my egg!!!
