    This is the first egg from my flock.

    I figure it cost me about $4000.00 including the 6' chain link around the 1/4 acre run, the coop, the brooder, the incubator, the feed, and the fertilized eggs.

    Thanks to my white leghorn who was hatched on April 18, 2011. [​IMG]

    Oh, I remember my first egg. I figure it cost me around $3K. Shhhh, don't tell DH.

    But you fry that baby up in a pan and have it with toast and it will be the best egg you ever have.

    I knew there was a reason I was writing down every little expense (including the package of band-aids I bought to cover all the nicks and scratches on my hands from coop building). I will know exactly how much that first scrambled egg for breakfast is gonna be worth. (At this rate I could probably have stayed in Vegas and ordered room service every morning for a week).

    WTG on the egg though!

    Oh, and it's World Egg Day today. How appropriate that she laid her first egg today of all days.

    And to think, some people spend that much on illegal addictions, and have nothing to show for it.
