Egg-tastic!


The bantams that I got in mid-September have started laying eggs!  They are Golden Seabrights, and I have a rooster (Waddles) and two hens (Mabel and Sheila).  I am not quite sure which of the hens is laying, but I am very excited about their being happy enough with their new surroundings to start.

In the spring I will probably let them have a clutch of chicks, but until then we will just enjoy the fruits of their labors...


Bantam eggs compared to a AA Large egg from the grocery store... how many of these will I need to make an omelet...?

I'm thinking you would need six to make a "traditional" 3-egg omelette. I bet they are delicious!! Cute chicks too!
