After several tons of feed, untold hundreds of gallons of water and four months of growing, the pullets have started to lay.
These tiny eggs are, appropriately, known as pullet eggs. Some say the first eggs a hen lays are the best she'll ever lay.
I'm not so sure if that is true (I think they're all pretty darn delicious) but these are certainly the sweetest eggs to find. It's something that never gets old - finding the very first eggs laid by a new batch of hens. Of course, these two eggs are just the hint of the flood to come. Two one day, perhaps none the next, two the third day, eight the fourth, seventeen the fifth, and before I'm ready (of course) we'll be collecting somewhere in the range of 175 eggs daily from these girls. And away we go!
