Chicken Chatter: Angel started laying!

Imagine my surprise when I went to check on the chickens and only saw 2 out of 5!  I stuck my head in the coop, and there were 3 chickens each in one of our 3 nesting boxes.  Most surprising of all was that one of the chickens was Angel!
Angel, a salmon faverolle.
Angel started molting in December, and did not lay eggs during the molt.  I have been anxiously awaiting her return to production ever since.

I was beyond thrilled when I later discovered this perfect little salmon egg in the nesting box.

Way to go, Angel! We're so proud of you!
