Black Copper Marans Egg! The New Chickens are Finally Laying… or at Least One of Them Is

The temperature here on the hillside has dropped dramatically the past few days and the forecast predicts that extreme cold is here to stay through the weekend. The skiff of snow that we received on Monday has been packed into a sheet of ice and the ground is hard and slick. Fortunately, the biting wind has abated slightly.

While plowing through my evening chores (in an effort to get back into a warm house as quickly as possible), I threw open the hatch on the chicken coop and to my delight was a small, speckled, dark brown egg from one of my Black Copper Marans!
