    We FINALLY got our first chicken egg today! A green one from our Araucana/EE. It was so eggciting!!! She sat in the nest box for close to an hour. I guess she got tired of us checking on her because she finally hopped out without laying her egg. Then, while I was in checking the box she laid it right on the ground by the duck's swimming pool. It's such a beautiful shade of green! I will post pictures under First Egg soon. She's 22 weeks today. Now all the other girls need to get busy!

    Of course, we've had duck eggs for weeks but for some reason the chicken egg is more exciting!
