At Last!

-
One of our chickens has finally laid an egg! I suspect it was a Speckled Sussex, as those two are always in and around the chicken coop. It's a little on the small side, but it's an actual egg! What a feeling to put my hand in the nest box and feel an egg inside the bed of straw! I'm so proud!

Im glad for you!

Yay! That's awesome! You'll have more eggs than you know what to do with soon ;).

I hear the eggs get bigger as the hens lay more. Practice makes perfect?

Edie said...

Hands waving in the air!!! Wish we were there to see your hens lay eggs... another time... How many have you gotten so far?

jenny said...

Stephanie-- That's what I hear, too. LOL! The 2nd egg we got was slightly bigger than the first, so I assume it was laid by the same hen?

Edie-- Oh I know, I wish you could have been here to taste them. So far it's been 3 little brown eggs. The girls cracked one, but the membrane is still intact, so it's in the fridge. xoxo
