Yes! We have Eggs!!
The Silkies, I am not sure are laying yet. Their eggs were supposed to be beige, I thought, but I will have to do more research on that. They are very timid birds. I read that they were more cuddly and good pets to have, but my two, I can't look at them the wrong way and they are gone like a shot! I suppose the two roosters in the pen have their nerves shot!
Anyway, just glad I am getting eggs again. I have been opening the pen gate and letting them free-range all over the yard so maybe they are repaying me! When I go outside, they come running at me just like a bunch of velociraptors in the Jurassic Park movie! You'd swear I never fed them ever! I think they are enjoying their bit of freedom though, before the winter comes and they are hen-house-bound.
Stay tuned. Going to winterize the henhouse a bit more before too long.
