Sometimes, especially in the summer, the egg-laying goes on overload. It takes a chicken about 25 hours to “process” and emit an egg, but the sunnier the days are, the closer to one egg per chicken per day you get.
Here, you see Jason, for the second time that day, scoring an egg off our trio of chickens. He had checked in the morning and got two, but acting on a hunch he went into the coop after we returned from dinner at a fine restaurant, and lo, Business Chicken had done some business.
I know, I know – we have chickens, they are the right age, we can reasonably expect eggs. But after all the coop dragging and poop cleaning, I feel Jason earns the right to gloat over his prizes every so often. 🙂
