Maybe we’ll make it through winter after all

This week one of the new hens started laying!  We aren’t sure which one it is yet, but my guess based on what we expect the new ladies’ eggs to look like is that its our Speckled Sussex (Specks is what we call her — yes, original I know).  She gave us three eggs this week, always in the same box, despite the fact that our little Bantam Leghorn (Big Chick Chick) lays in any box she fancies on any given day (and sometimes up in the roosting huch).

yay!

The first of three eggs this week from "the new girl"

In other news, it’s finally Fall in Durham and the biggest change to me is the light.  The earth’s seasonal tilt is in full effect, making for crazy long shadows on our afternoon walks.  Love it!
