All right. chickeneers. You’ve heard me bitch and moan about my chickens who aren’t laying (I’m looking at you Maisie, Haley and TRIXIE); how about we take a moment to appreciate those who are my laying stars?
For regularity, it’s hard to beat Alexia. She was the first, and rare is the day she takes off. She is diligent; she is committed. But…her eggs are small. BZZZZ. Sorry, Alexia. Thanks for playing.
If we’re going by egg size and quality, then Hermione is right at the top, but, even once they’ve all been found, the numbers just don’t add up. Coraline’s reliable, but has left the nest empty a few times this week. What’s up with that, Cor?
I think it’s Abby. It occurred to me last week that I couldn’t remember a day where Abby had not laid. Like, going back a week or two. The girl’s a machine. She finally took a day off last Monday, so I started the clock on Tuesday, and will be seeing how long she goes laying every day.
Now, Abby’s eggs are not only plentiful, they are also gorgeous. She is my go-to girl for mayonnaise eggs, now that Pip is no longer with us. We’re talking extra larges, sleek, beautiful, oblong, every day.
I’ll let you know what her running count is. In the meantime, let me know: what’s your record chickeneers? And who is your champeen? We want pics!
