Some hens work harder than others

Lenora Frigid has been hard at work while the rest of our free-loading flock just clucks around, eating their organic, soy-free, corn-free, locally grown, locally milled chicken feed. Lenora has laid 13 eggs in the last 14 days. I think that effort deserves a round of applause, especially since the other hens have collectively laid zero eggs. White leghorn chickens produce most of the eggs at the grocery store, and white leghorn chickens produce all of the eggs in my backyard.
