In today’s video, I am sharing with you my chicken laying an egg. Being self-sufficient on the farm or homestead is one thing that makes us homesteaders. Living off the land, foraging, husbandry, cutting our own wood for heat and cooking, gardening, canning, keeping bees, preserving, and all the other fun things is what us homesteaders get to do.
Chicken Laying An Egg
My daughter and I went out to the chicken coop the other day and were super excited to see our hen Foghorn Leghorn laying an egg. Despite her masculine name Ms. Foghorn is definitely female as you can see. She is actually a White Leghorn chicken hence the name. We also have another White Leghorn named Prissy but she is only 14 weeks at the moment and it is the middle of winter here in Illinois. So Prissy will not be laying eggs until the warmer spring months. However, Foghorn is 8 months and has been laying for about 6 weeks at this point despite the cold temps of January.
This was the first time Logen, who is my oldest daughter, and I had ever seen a chicken lay an egg. After months and months of having chickens, we had never been down at the barn during the correct time to witness this wonderful event.
If you have never seen a chicken lay an egg then you are in for a treat!
