    I just love your blog [​IMG] Your girls are so cute! So glad you finally got your first egg! I was hoarse from yelling my excitement the first time! My egg was much smaller though [​IMG]

    Quote:Thank you Justine! Our egg seems to look big in the pictures, but it's really not all that large. It was good egg though. Nice and hard. We have not broken it open yet. Tara wants to eat it in the morning. It sure is exciting getting that first ever egg. What a wonderful day!!

    Congratulations!!

    I had almost the same experience last week when I couldnt find my sons' favorite girl, Bowling Ball, only she started squawking inside the coop within seconds of me starting my search. MY favorite girl, Salty, did it to me yesterday, too, LOL!

    First eggs are SO exciting!!!

    Our first eggs were all hard too [​IMG] I was very worried they wouldn't be. I was surprised with how long it actually takes a chicken to lay one!

    PS: I really like your nesting box set up!
