Young Chicken Eggs

My chickens are now 6 months old. They started laying eggs about 1 month ago. The eggs started out small in size and are now getting to be the size of a large egg.

The egg shells are hard, which is good. That tells me the chickens are getting a good amount of calcium in their diet.

The one thing that is entertaining us recently is the quantity of double yokes. This is the first we have gotten so many.

Double yokes occur when the chicken releases 2 yokes too close together to build the calcium based outer shell.

Love my chickens. Their rooster, however, is well, a rooster.

Enjoy your chickens,
