Oh Yes, Another Layer!
Stella, our other Red Star, layed her first little brown egg yesterday. Again, I felt like a proud mom and was super excited. But of course, like the sage farmer I am (ha ha ha), I knew she was going to lay this week or next. I noticed about a week or so ago that she started walking differently, almost as if she was getting her hips, but not in a human way, in a chicken way. She also started sleeping in the nest box a few times, so I knew it was coming. And yesterday, she did it, and the little egg is so adorable and small. I'm so proud, and stoked that I will be collecting four eggs a day.
