Got Eggs?

Over the past 3 days we have got 1 egg/day. The size is about 1/3 that of an XL egg that we get from the store. The hen that is laying is not the most "mature looking" hen out in the hen house, surprisingly enough. By looking at how big their combs and wobbles are, I think I should have at least 3 of them laying by now, with the others sneaking up right behind them.

I've been writing the date that the egg was laid right on the egg in pencil. I'm going to save a few up and then take a picture of them all together to see how long it takes for the hen to produce the larger eggs I know she's capable of. Maybe we'll then take and have a big pan of scrambled eggs for breakfast with them.

The Hen House

It's still not lettered, and the plexi-glass in the door will need to be re-done, and the door needs some trim, etc., etc. Wanted to get pictures of it because I've been promising to send them to Elder Kyle Denton in Argentina...he hasn't seen this yet.
