Three Layers... Finally!
There is no denying it! We finally have a third layer. Rosie has been 'squatting' for about a week, so I knew she was getting close to laying. Abby was thrilled this afternoon when she came back with two brown eggs, one a little smaller than the other. The farmer we got the hens from said Rosie and Clara Belle had hatched some time in November. That means Rosie is about 7 months old... I knew Orps were slow layers, but I never imagined it would take this long!
