On the way to the pool this morning (at 9:40!), Blair and I stopped by to check on the chickens, and we found our first egg! I was so excited!
The egg is a small brown one, and it was nested in the house and not in the laying boxes.
There were little rounded out places all in the bottom of the house – I guess she was looking for a good spot! I think I may not have had enough bedding in the laying boxes, so I added some more, and now there’s a nice thick layer in there.
While I was working on the laying boxes, these girls were so curious, I could hardly get finished. The brown one especially was trying to escape, whining the whole time -- she makes this noise that sounds like a wanna be rooster trying crowing through pain.
These girls checked out the new bedding immediately.
This is the egg compared to a regular large egg from the grocery store. The first ones will be small, but they should get bigger.
I’m such a proud mama!
