Yes, it IS that time of year again. As some of you know, residents of Madison, WI are allowed to have 4 hens (no roosters!) within the city limits. Last Fall, we bought 4 pullets (young hens that are getting close to laying age), replacing the single hen we had. One of our 4 chickens began laying eggs on Monday, so we knew Spring was clearly getting closer. Chickens have to be "light stimulated" to lay eggs, so the days are definitely getting longer.
The really exciting thing though.......yesterday...... 4 EGGS!
