Rosie the Egg Machine

This morning, Rosie layed her 200th egg. We think she's amazing.

Rosie is our Red Star (red sex link), a hybrid chicken designed for good egg production. She was hatched May 17, 2010, and laid her first egg on Sept. 22, 2010. It's early to begin laying at only four months of age. Today she produced her 200th egg in 207 days. She takes a very occasional day of rest.

Our thanks to Rosie for all her hard work!
