    Our first set of eggs, and I think they came from the same hen, or at least that's what I'm assuming since she disappeared for a while today. She didn't come when I called her, but then reappeared from the coop ten minutes later. She's a SLW with a single comb we named Fertile Myrtle.

    I'm just tickled pink. OUR FIRST EGGS!!! I showed the eggs to the hens, but nobody wanted to claim responsibility [​IMG]

    I took a photo of the eggs sitting next to the cute salt and pepper shakers my CH got me for my b-day.

    Fertile Myrtle produced another egg today. Same size, but darker than yesterdays. I'm assuming the eggs will grow with the hen and become larger when she is full grown. The tiny eggs are cute though [​IMG]
