    It's been incredibly cold in the high rockies the last couple of nights so we decided to put the girls in the dog kennel and bring them inside for the night. This morning when I opened up the kennel I was shocked to find the smallest, most perfect white egg laying at the door. Oh happy day!


    It came from our consistently most bold hen, Hilary, a leghorn. Now we're just waiting for the other three to catch up. Our other leghorn has a comb that's still very undeveloped (especially in comparison to her sister), and we have a Rhode Island Red and a Black Star. They're all about the same age (so we were told when we purchased them at the chicken swap in Denver -- if you're in the area, you should check it out, http://www.denverurbanhomesteading.com/new_page_3.htm).

    Still have not cracked the egg, but the shell is very solid, no light spots. Now we just hope that the eggs get bigger!

    Congrats to all the others with their first eggs too!
