I haven't exactly kept it a secret that Greta is my favorite of all the girls. Sure, she isn't very smart, but she's so pretty!
And, as it turns out, she's now a proven performer in the egg-laying department! Yesterday I found two eggs, but I hadn't looked the day before, so I wasn't sure if they were both from the same chicken over two days, or from two chickens.
This morning I peaked inside their house and found Greta making herself comfortable in the nesting box. I went back a few hours later and found another egg!
They really are pretty. I'd say they tend more toward green than blue, though. And although they are smaller than a store-bought egg (shown here next to a AA Large egg), I'm not complaining!
All of the girls now squat and hold out their wings when I touch their back, so I think it won't be long before I find 3 eggs every morning. Yay!
