I started getting eggs last week. Isn't in incredible? I did SO much research before I got them. I still do a lot of research - there is so much to learn... But there is nothing that prepared me for how AWESOME, and I mean that word in its truest form, this whole enterprise becomes once they start laying. I just heard the "egg song" for the first time since they started. I went out and had the honor of seeing my sweet Silver Laced Wyandotte, Sesame, in the nest. That will be my second little, perfect egg today. We have gotten 2 consistently everyday, even yesterday when they layed late (and in the duck house ). It just feels like such a gift and a validation of all the hard work. Not that I mind the work, I actually enjoy the little routine.
