working girl

Clementine is finally earning her keep!
All of my girls gave me their first eggs in early October with the exception of Miss Clementine, my Buff Brahma. In her defense, the larger breeds of chickens mature more slowly (she's a big girl), so I had expected her to be a "late bloomer." But as the weeks went by, I began to think she might be a "never bloomer." But finally, at 41 weeks of age, she gave me her first egg. As you can see below, it almost looks pink, and I'm hoping the speckles stick around as she begins to lay in earnest.
