But as I was leaving, I noticed that the store's chicken pen had some young Ameraucana pullets in it. Hey, I was looking for some of those! You girls are coming home with me.
Our three JFR green egg layers have gone off their laying lately, and my egg cartons have grown a bit mono-chromatic of late. Time to call in some recruits. Happily, I have an idle chicken pen just waiting for new occupants. Just have to drag it in from the south end of the pasture.
Check it out, ladies...
Five new layers, happy in their new home. Hopefully in about three months, we'll be back in the green egg business.
