    OK, So you may think that I am mad, but in my defense I am new to keeping chickens.

    I have my first ever egg, laid today by Esmarelda at 8am this morning. and I am soooooooo proud and please, that I want to tell someone and I think that only people on this forum will truly understand just how pleased I am.

    Soooo.........WHOOP WHOOP!!! YEY! I HAVE AN EGG.................

    Thank you for listening.[​IMG]

    [​IMG] Well we poached the egg, and I have to say that it was delicious. It was lightly poached and nestled on a slice of my seeded bread (toasted). I have to say that though the egg was small it was so full of flavour.

    Leigh my partner wanted me to eat it by myself but I just had to share it.[​IMG]

    I have tried to download pic of lovely egg, but I don't seem to be able to do it....... sorry. [​IMG]
