After many months of cold weather my chickens have finally decided there is enough daylight and warm weather to start laying on a regular basis again. Our 7 euro white Livornese chicken actually produced eggs all winter (about every few days). Our fancy 45 euro Marans and Araucana chickens, who are known to be a bit more fragile, just decided in the last week to start laying again.
In any case, I was happy to open the coop today and find these three beautiful eggs waiting for me. Just in time to make some birthday cakes. I love spring.
