One of my favorite things is discovering freshly laid eggs in the nesting boxes. It never seems to grow old. Each egg is a gift from the girls. In fact, if you pay close enough attention, you will soon be able to discover which hen has laid which egg. Freshly laid eggs not only taste better but last longer if cared for properly. Happy hens not only lay more consistently but also lay better eggs. This starts with ensuring they have a safe place to lay their eggs, have access to layer food, fresh water and calcium.
