Higher Math

Molting has stopped.
Feathers are in.
The Winter solstice has passed.
The days are getting infinitesimally longer.
The "I Laid an Egg" song is being sung.
It was sung FOUR times in one day on January 3rd!

The other hens decided if an old hen like Penny can lay eggs, so can they.
Long live the yard egg!
Out with the grocery store egg!


  1. It makes my heart smile to hear the " I laid a egg song" I could be having the worst day ever, and when I hear that it makes everything better for a few minutes! Rock on yard eggs!!

  2. So far me hens have not stopped laying even thought the temps have dipped down to the low 20s' Brrrr. Spring must be coming for you!


  3. Woooo! Our lives are parallel in so many ways! It would seem our chickens have an internal clock that we can't even begin to fathom -that, as soon as the days even minutely lengthen, they can sense it ...and their egg laying resumes.
    High five, friend...we've got farm fresh eggs again!

  4. Congrats on hearing the "I Iaid and egg" song

  5. Yeah, eggs!!! I love my chickens and their eggs! We have 17 hens and get around 9 to 11 eggs/day now. On a good day we get a dozen a day. I haven't had to buy eggs in years! I'm glad you don't have to anymore!

    PS - Happy New Year!

  6. Hooray, hooray! The duck girls are churning the eggs out too. They never really slowed down, so I'm still watching to see what their habits end up being...

  7. With ten hens (Rhode Island Red and Barred Rock Plymouth), I hear that song several times a day and love it! Not sure I could go back to "grocery store eggs"... ;-)
