conundrum...

Conundrum is defined as:
"a  logical postulation that evades resolution, an intricate and difficult problem."

Today's conundrum...

1 day
5 happy hens
7 eggs



I have 2 questions...

Number one: How is this possible?
Number two: How soon can I expect a golden egg?

This isn't the first time we've been surprised and collected more eggs than we have hens. A joke, perhaps? Well, our nearest neighbor is a dear man of 77 who is not the prankster type, and our trusty farm dog is always near the hen house...she would definitely let us know if there was anyone nearby.

I absolutely checked the nest boxes first thing in the morning...empty.
At day's end, 7 eggs are tucked inside.

Here's my advice to anyone considering buying chicks this year...
find. these. breeds.

       

Tetra Tint
Golden Comet

There's just something magical about them!

  2. Well what a surprise indeed ! Maybe one hen is battery operated lol ! On my farm days we would have the odd hen that would lay more then one egg in a day ! But there's always hope for that golden egg one can never know ! Have a good day !

    1. Crossing my fingers! They even lay all winter...without a light to encourage them. They really are the best hens.
