My Tiny Brood of Backyard Chooks

chooks, hens or chickens?

My Partridge Wyandotte bantams laid their first egg



The egg at the top on the left is Hilda Hen’s egg. She is a Barnevelder. She always lays large, elongated eggs with freckles and two shades of brown.

The egg on the right at the top is Hannah Hen’s. She is a Partridge Wyandotte bantam. She lays small, light green eggs.

The two tiny eggs at the front belong to two of my three “babies”. They are Partridge Wyandotte bantams and they are five and a half months old. These two girls laid their first egg yesterday. I couldn’t be more proud.

  1. Hooray! How exciting. Did you manage to find nice homes for your two boys in the end?

  2. you were right, they were ready to lay, congratulations!

  3. Congratulations! What a nice surprise…I know it felt like FOREVER until my girls laid….but now I can’t remember how old they were…6 months i think…

  4. Wow! How time has flown by…can’t believe they are 5 1/2 months old and laying. Congratulations!

  5. I find it fascinating that 2 lay their first egg on the same day. You’d sort of expect that over a 2 week period (or so) each of the 3 would pick their day to lay their first egg all by themselves but I think there is something about the whole flock thing that makes them all start at the same time. I predict the 3rd chook isn’t far behind her sisters.

    Well done little girls!

  6. Very exciting! And such cute little eggs. 🙂
