Chickens Stories from Our Nest

A Rare Occasion

It is rare when all four of our Silkies lay an egg in the same day.  Today was such an occasion.  It made me smile.  Silkie Bantams are not known to be the best egg layers, laying only 2 eggs or so per week.  With our four Silkies, I typically  find one or two of their eggs per day.  However, they are incredibly lovable, great mothers and sweet pets.  Dolly’s eggs usually are cream colored.  Today it was white as snow.  These girls are always amazing me.  I shared this with my kids today and they told me that this egg was special because it was different.  This made me smile even more; another lesson learned from chickens.
