It's been Mom's dream to have chickens all her grown life. So it was a "no-brainer" that we'd have chickens here on our little farm. Well, Mom's chickens are growing up... fast! Born April 23, she got her first egg today. It was laid on the well-padded floor in front of the waterers and near the feeders. Sadly, Mom wasn't the first to find it. But we did leave it where we found it until she could get to the coop. Now, Mom gets all the egg money, so you can be she's getting egg-sited. The four of us eat nearly 5 dozen eggs a week by the time she's done with all her baking and cooking, so it may be a while.
