Our sweet little chickens are finally BOTH doing their work. Mary Poppins has been giving us 4-5 eggs a week since her 2nd week here, and now, Nugget has finally gotten the picture. Her comb and waddles have turned bright red, and I've caught her a few times, laying in the nesting box she's skillfully avoided this whole time. Today I pulled 2 eggs instead of one. So unless Mary Poppins is doing double duty, Nugget can now carry the status of "Hen".
Good girl Nugget.
