June 9, 2013– Well, there’s been a bit of a development in our little coop. Sawyer and I noticed that each day there are exactly two eggs in the nesting box. One is mine, the other is hers. Three of us live here, which means only one thing… Wilma’s been phoning it in. We’re not completely surprised by her lack of egg production. She is five after all. Her egg making engine could have seized the day and then, seized all together. Yes, she is a royal pain at times, but we’ve got her back. Whenever Mom finds an egg in the nest and asks whose beautiful creation it is, Sawyer and I both point to Wilma. I’m fairly sure though, that she can tell the difference. Sawyer’s eggs are dark brown, mine are medium brown, and Wilma’s eggs have always had a long pointy end that is darker than the rest of the shell. Still, Mom thanks us all with equal enthusiasm and tells us that her girls are the best hens in the world. I’m guessing her saying this has nothing to do with eggs.
