    So, just as we were starting to think our hen was a dud... look at what we found on "Easter-eve":

    A beautiful "pre-colored" egg!

    ^^^ It's our first "home-gathered" egg! (It's really green...the lighting makes is look tan)

    ^^^ For a 1st egg, it isn't much smaller then a regular one!

    ^^^ A little Eastery Theme (the painted eggs are actually wooden)


    I'm so EXCITED!!! My little girl is a Woman! (Well... you know what I mean [​IMG] )

    Congratulations! We got our first egg a couple of weeks ago, and it's just so exciting. Looks like your girl did a good job, it's a lovely egg. [​IMG]

    No we have 3... well, currently one hen and 2 roos :| Our other hens we killed (by hawks and foxes) before we were able to build our coop [​IMG]

    So the last girl standing, laying her 1st egg really means a lot to us.

    We're getting a bunch more hens soon, so hopefully more eggs too!

    Congrats on your egg! How well do your 2 roos get along? Were they raised together?
