Luna's chicks were born on April 13th & 14th. On September 12th & 13th, the chicks born in that clutch started laying their first eggs - 6 months to the day after they were born. Luna and her siblings were just as reliable and started laying 6 months after they hatched. Talk about on-time reliability. So far, the chickens are sailing into first place if we were to compare them to the airlines' reliability!
What I didn't blog about was when Beatrice's chick hatched only a day or two after Midnight's 2 chicks. Beatrice and Midnight shared responsibility for the 3 babies, 2 of which were hens and one is a rooster. The hens should start laying around December 16th - 18th. Let's see if they keep up the good record of being on time.
Follow the antics of the Science room chicks and their offspring as they hang out on Maggie's Farm. During the summer, we grow vegetables and raspberries that are sold to Madison's restaurants.
