The first eggs were laid on the weekend of November 19th, 6 months after they arrived at Ocean Street. We are pretty sure that only two of the three hens are laying- Hops and Impatience. We believe this partially because Yeller still has a small, more pale comb on top of her head, while the other two have combs that are much bigger and redder (Hops' being the biggest by far).

Here they are eating one of their favorite treats- plain yogurt! You can see the difference in their combs quite well- In the back are Yeller (left) and Hops (right), Impatience is in the front.

Yes, we have eaten the eggs and yes, they are fantastic!!! So exciting to have fresh eggs from our backyard.
