    My first eggs!!!!!! [​IMG]

    I can't believe how excited I am! It's so wonderful to walk down the garden and collect my beautiful, very fresh eggs from a warm pile of straw in my own chicken coop, rather than buy some off the shelf in a shop.

    Brick even decorates them for me with beautiful, brown speckles! [​IMG]

    So cool! Finding eggs has never lost it's appeal to me! Everytime I go to the nest box and find them there (sporadic right now!) I celebrate and I have had chickens for three years now!

    I read on your blog about George. I hope to see a post from you in the spring that George has miraculously appeared. [​IMG]

    YUP. It's always a thrill to find eggs ... but even more special when it's a first one.
    Congrats.

    Congrats on your first eggs! We got ours on New year's day, so it was pretty exciting. [​IMG]
    I love finding eggs. When I was a kid, I'd use to look for eggs with my friends at Temple Newsam. That farm got enough of our business, let me tell ya. [​IMG]
