Free Range Egg Laid

My white leghorn hen, Hatty has laid her first egg of 2008. So as part of Farmhouse Breakfast Week I will be having the lovely free range egg soft boiled with toasted soldiers for my breakfast this weekend.
We found the lovely white egg snuggled into some grain on top of the mill this morning. We think that she laid the egg on Thursday but I haven’t got into the habit of looking for Hatty’s eggs yet, but I will be checking every day now!

The mill is Hatty’s favourite place to lay an egg!

The Hatty egg count begins for 2008. In 2007 Hatty laid 101 free range eggs which I found and enjoyed, although she does like to challenge me by moving her nest every once in a while so it will be interesting to see where she tries to lay some eggs this year!
