    Today, blessedly, we found the most perfect, most beautiful, most perfectly-formed medium pink-brown egg in the nest box. I screamed, I jumped up and down, I cried.

    I fried it. DH and I ate it.

    We are content.

    My pullets are the best girls in the world!!!

    It is terrific to hear others getting eggs. I let mine out this morning and got a surprise too, but it wasn't an egg. Our cochin started crowing like a rooster! I went back inside and my wife knew right away what the sound was for sure. I guess I should have paid closer attention to her when she was picking them out. We are still waiting for our first egg.
