    I was saying my goodbyes to the girls this morning before heading to work and noticed one of my favorite little girls, Charlotte (EE), wasn't in the run.

    I stuck my head in the coop and there she was, sitting/straining in one of the nesting boxes looking very confused. She just started squatting for me last week, so I knew she was starting to get egg dreams floating through her head.

    A couple of her buddies were crowded around and we all stood there for several minutes, quietly cheering her on. One last big push and out came her very first egg! A beautiful blue! She let out a big squawk, looked down at the egg with a very shocked look on her face, looked back up at us and let out a loud, triumphant egg song. Yahoooooo!! Congrats sweet girl, we're all so proud of you!

    From fluff to awkward teen to first dust bath to first egg! (blue one on right)

    What a good chicken, getting it right in the nest box to begin with!

    Congratulations to both of you!
