May Day Egg Report; a calendar for April


In April, after a winter of no egg-laying happening in my girls' coop, the eggs started to appear. Being four years old this spring, the hens were supposed to be pretty much done with laying, or so all the despairing jumped-on-the-backyard-chicken-trend writers were saying. Not so with my three. To keep track of their production, I decided to have a little fun and design a way to visually monitor this unexpected abundance! Here you go:

April egg calendar
Calendar form was drawn in pencil, and then inked in with a pointed pen. A very casual pen script was added along with freely written versal letters for the days of the week. I cut a little egg eraser stamp and used three colors of brown stamp pads for distinguishing who laid eggs on which day.
