I have one hen who is very vocal when I try to get eggs out from underneath her...she literally starts screeching at me as soon as I open the door to the hen house! LOL!! She is so funny, she gets all puffed up too! I usually laugh at her and pet her and then leave her alone and gather her eggs later.
This is Dolores, my only chicken with a name. She is 7 years old this year and she still lays eggs! She has given us 3 nice eggs in the past 10 days. She laid 8 or so eggs last spring which really surprised me! :) Hers is the green one in the basket below.
The 10 girls gave us 10 eggs yesterday, I think that was a new record for us! I am very thankful today and every day for my lovely chickens and all the yummy eggs they give us!!
