    One of my girls laid her first egg today! This is the first one I've ever gotten from my own chickens and I'm SO EXCITED! Ahhhhh! [​IMG]

    We knew she was working on something yesterday when she went back into her roost at ten in the morning. And today, lo and behold, a beautiful pink egg!

    I didn't think they would start laying until springtime. What a terrific way to start a new year!

    I know! I am so jazzed about it. I guess she really likes being able to free range (she was cooped pretty tightly in the place I got her from)

    Or, those tomatoes I fed her the other day were the right touch...........

    Quote:Yep, I think I'll be the same for a while. She laid another one this morning and it just made me smile all over again.
