Chicken Update

Our ladies are still hard at work.  The leaves are piling up in the garden and the ladies have digging and scratching and making beautiful compost.

Today's harvest of chicken eggs.  I've been keeping the lights on in the chicken coop a few extra hours to help maintain production.  It's a controversial move among homesteaders but its what I've decided to do for this year at least as my ladies are an integral part of this urban homestead.  My Americana is now laying regularly and today's blue egg was the largest one so far.  She has also become much more friendly and is one of the first hens to great me each time I walk out the door.
