First egg of the season!
I found the first egg of the season yesterday. I was surprised and happy with the price of feed my girls need to produce well to just cover feed costs.
I am not sure if it's one of the new hens or one of the older ones. Its earlier than normal this year by one month and I hope the gals continue to lay. It was one of my light brown egg layers. I have 6 different colors of eggs in my flock.
I was fortunate to have eggs stored up for use and only occasionally look at the price of eggs when I pass by them in the store.
Prices of eggs make me wonder if more people will buy chicks this year to raise or if the price of feed will scare them away.
