On the 24th, almost three weeks since the first egg was found, I did chores as normally. I put the chickens up, no eggs, and walked the goats down to their pen. When we got Ethel (New Goat), we drug the chickens old hoop house down and put it in the goat shed. Ethel had spring feet, and we could NOT keep her in a pen. We thought the totally enclosed hoop house would be the perfect solution. Lucy and Ethel have loved it, I give them hay in the old nest boxes each evening, and Ethel jumps on top of the nest boxes and eats. By the time I put the goats in the hoop house it’s usually dark. I’ve gone in there so many times I don’t need light. The night before as I put hay in I thought I saw something, but quickly pushed the thought aside. The next night I saw it again, just a glint of white. At about that time, I thought, eggs!!! I bet the chicken is laying her cute little white eggs in here! Well, I was half right, apparently she was enjoying it, and so was someone else! There were also rich, dark brown eggs along with the white ones. It confirmed my hopes, that black chicken with the golden neck was indeed a Black Copper Marans!!!!
