Our little chicks from our July rescue have given us their first "practice egg"! I found it in the coop just a little while ago. It's half the size of a normal egg. Usually most chickens will lay their first egg right around 4 months but these little gals are 5 months old. I guess with the cold and late moult they are right on time for their time of year. Tim just made them two very nice nesting boxes made from milk crate idea a friend had forwared. Our other chickens have even started laying more as well!
