Today’s egg-y goodness

Look at all the yummy eggs I collected this morning! Our adult turkeys started laying a few days ago (silly turkeys) – and now it looks like the turkeys formerly known as Thanksgiving and Christmas are also laying. You can see their smaller eggs next to the full size turkey eggs up top. Apparently they’re both hens, given that there were two eggs this morning. I knew one – let’s call her I Guess We’re Going to Keep You – was a hen, because she drops like a rock in front of me every time I enter the pen. She apparently is a little confused about both species and gender if she really wants fertile eggs. I had assumed the other turkey – we can call her I Guess We’re Going to Keep You, Two – was male, but maybe she just doesn’t like me.

The chickens are laying up a storm – it’s tempting to think about pulling out the incubator soon, but that’s what I bought silkies for. If either one thinks about going broody, I’ll let them. We have a bunch of pure wheaten Ameraucana hens and a rooster, but for the winter they’re all mixed in with other breeds – silkies, a maran, a splash cochin rooster, some Easter Eggers, and a whole bunch of who-knows-whats. Mutt chickens can be so beautiful!
