This was an egg that I found outside in an old nesting box I have on the outside of the chicken coop.  This box faces East and the chickens love sunning themselves inside the little holes.  This box came from Al's Grandma and Grandpa Luetschwager's farm.  They had a dairy farm here in Ringle.  I have many ideas of posts about our Grandparents and their words of wisdom.  Today its about the eggs.  The hens are starting to lay now.  I've been getting about 3-5 eggs a day.   Soon, hopefully, it should be up to 12-15 a day.  Our chickens lay small light brown eggs.  Fresh eggs have dark yellow yokes.
