It began a week ago…but I remember it like it was yesterday.
Walking out to the chicken run, I discovered a surprise. In addition to our usual count of two teal eggs was a tiny brown one. I speculated on who had laid the itty-bitty egg.
The next day, my question was answered.
Charlene fluttered into the coop looking urgent. She hopped into a nest box and announced several squawks. When she exited the coop, I peered inside and found a sweet brown egg. Ahhh…my Charlene had grown-up.
Three days later, there was another new egg. This one had a pinkish hue with white speckles. There have been many more of these Easter eggs since. I have deduced that these eggs belong to my darling, Aretha.
And lastly, my beautiful Stella has joined the line-up of egg laying with her brand new, light brown eggs.
The only girl I’m still waiting on is Lola. I expect to find a surprise from her any day now.
