Egg Count

Today we found two eggs in the coop. The last few days we found one egg a day in nesting box #6. Today’s second egg was in nesting box #5 and was of a narrower shape. A little research leads me to believe that a Buff Orpington laid our first four eggs while a Barred Rock laid the one found in box #5 today.

Do you suppose The Girls are staking claim to their favorite nesting box?

I’ve added “The Egg Count” where I’ll update the daily count until I forget, or until finding eggs waiting for us every morning grows old!
