If you hear a ruckus in the hen house, either a strange critter is prowling around the yard, OR your chicken has laid her very first egg.
We figured that Migas was the lucky chicky since Ameraucana eggs are blue-ish. I’m surpised because she is the smallest and doesn’t have much of a comb; I wasn’t sure she was fully grown yet. But she went to it like a pro, placing the egg right next to the fake one in the nesting box. This is quite a victory for her since she is lowest in the pecking order and gets mercilessly bullied by HennyPenny and Henrietta Universe.
Migas is strutting around out there right now, bok-boking, “Take that, mother-cluckers. You can just go suck an egg, biddies.”
