Laying like crazy

Our chickens are laying eggs, lots of eggs  We are averaging 3 or 4 eggs a day, all different colors and sizes, and are starting to look for creative ways to eat eggs everyday.  We are still trying to determine exactly which chickens are laying which eggs.

While we are loving the eggs and the chickens, we are still trying to keep the chickens in their pen.  The chickens live in their tractor with an attached run inside a larger penned area where they spend most of their time.  This area has a 4 foot fence, which three of the chicken fly over without much thought.  After much hemming and hawing we clipped their feathers, only to find that these three girls are adaptable flyers and they continue to escape.  Luckily our dog has decided the chickens are not worth chasing or eating, but we are still wary after a recent fox sighting in the vegetable garden.
