The chickens laid two eggs! I’ve been plotting their deaths, and then today when I went out to feed them I looked in the house just out of habit, and there were TWO EGGS! Their five month long egg laying drought has been broken!

Maybe it was because they spent the weekend pecking around the whole yard instead of being confined to their own smaller yard? The wind blew the gate open and they had a lovely time strolling around the yard and exploring and eating stuff. Of course they also pooped all over the deck, which is the reason that they have never previously been allowed to enjoy the freedom of the big yard, so I’m not sure where to go with this. I don’t want them in the yard and shitting all over my deck, but is that the price I have to pay for eggs???
