We bought our chickens back in October as 3-4 month old pullets, which meant they'd come of laying age in January or February.  We had been wondering if they would actually start laying in winter, with the short daylight, or if they would just wait until spring.

Today, Manflesh found the answer:

Isn't it beautiful?

There were actually two more, once he started looking, but they were a little flimsy and cracked on the way in.  We'll be supplementing the girls' calcium now that we know they're going to be making a lot of use of it.

Now I'm excited for our easter eggers to start laying so that we'll have a whole egg rainbow.
