Claire brings up her century
August 30, 2008 § Leave a comment
Claire, our Welsumer pullet, laid her 100th egg today. Hooray!
She was keeping pace with Frida for a while, but has fallen back a bit lately. Laying two eggs every three days at the moment. Much less fussing about her laying now (compared to this).
Welsumers are fairly good layers, so she’s probably performing as well as we could expect. The main reason we wanted to have one is for the rich brown colour of their eggs. Claire’s eggs vary from orange and speckly to more uniformly dark brown. Taste just the same everyone else’s though!
