We Did the Chicken Dance in Our Kitchen

....because one of them (not sure which one) FINALLY laid an egg!!!!! 

SO. Stinkin'. Excited.  We have 22 chickens.  So far only two roosters out of the bunch (dinner someday soon) so we should be set soon with eggs!

Now - to get them to actually lay them IN the nesting boxes.  Hmmm....for now, the kids are starting a new class called 'egg hunt'.  It's not just for Easter anymore.

  1. You may already know this, but you can put an egg (real or fake) or a golf ball in the next boxes to encourage them to lay there. I used a golf ball and it worked great. Don't you just love having chickens?

    BTW, I love following your blog and have enjoyed reading about your journey with Charlotte. I "know" you from the SL forums where I used to lurk daily. I haven't been there in quite a while now, but I remember you from when you were an international. :) I'm "Love2Homeschool".

    Loved the post about her Father's Day gift to her daddy!!
