First pullet egg of

Rain barrel and pullet eggI
always get a kick out of the first pullet egg of the year.  In
2014, our young ladies started their productive careers at 18 weeks of
age, seven days younger than
when I wrote this post a couple of years ago about when to expect your first eggs.

I liked this shot because Mark captured our new rain barrel
as well as the tiny egg.  Rain barrels aren’t really
chicken-related…except that this barrel has been primarily used for
filling buckets of water to carry to the chicken coop.  It’s
astonishing how many steps a rain barrel can save over the course of
just a few weeks.  If you’re sick of carrying water, adding a rain barrel near (or on) your chicken coop can make your life much easier!
