Our new batch of chickens we got in June should start laying eggs any day now. They arrived in the mail as day old chicks. I remember it was a ninety degree day. The kids were so excited to open that box up. Thankfully all ten were fine. Now they look full grown. I keep checking every morning for that first egg. We love raising chickens. We got our very first batch over two years ago. They roam our yard pecking for a bug or worm or sometimes scraps from the kitchen. The yolks are orange in color. Nothing beats a fresh egg. Well maybe, chocolate.
