Our new pullets are starting to lay the sweetest little eggs. They will be small for a couple of weeks before the eggs reach a more "adult" hen size. Plus I'm finding them in funny places: on the coop floor, in the grass of the new chicken run, I even found one on top of one of the rabbit cages. It's kind of like the egg actually takes the pullet by surprise and she just lays it where she happens to be instead of making her way to the nesting boxes like the other hens. This will go on for a couple of weeks, too. Then these little girls finally figure out what's going on and will lay in the boxes.

In the meantime, it's pretty fun. Kind of like Easter!
