Eulalie’s First Egg — or 6! January 25, 2013

Eulalie was the second chicken to make an egg. We didn’t know she was laying until one day she went missing. Three chickens were present and accounted for — and one was gone. The green-eyed chicken, Eulalie. A long search had us ready to head to the neighbors’ house to see if she’d hopped the fence. Then we saw her — curled up under a bush against the house. And underneath her fluffy feathers — an egg. No, 2–3? Then 3 more? Holy Chicken! Eulalie had been hoarding eggs for a week! 

Later I heard her crowing and Bk-Gawing! She had laid another egg, and this one GIGANTIC! That egg turned out to be a double yolk egg. 

Now we get an egg a day from Eulalie, and almost as many from everyone else. What a treat!Image
