Fresh eggs

After work I went out and checked the coop for eggs, because I hadn't found any that morning, and Penny lays one about every day and a half. Well, to my surprise, I found two! That can only mean one thing - the lighter colored, slightly smaller egg on the left came from the biggest of the 'wild' hens. Now I have two egglayers! Best of all, she laid it in the coop right next to Penny's egg. I was afraid she would sneak off and lay them somewhere else because she doesn't sleep in the coop, she sleeps in the tree in the pen.
*note: after taking this picture I turned around to go put them in the house and immediately dropped the bigger one :( Oh well, there'll be another one in about 36 hours...
