    Here is our very first ever egg!! I just went into the henhouse to scrape poo and stir around the shavings, and there it sat. Tucked over UNDERNEATH the nestboxes!! I'm such a proud mommy!!

    Here it is:

    And here is Doris Mae, who I must now officially refer to as a HEN. I'm pretty sure she is the culprit of our beautiful little egg:

    I've popped over from the duck board for a peek. Doesn't matter what kind of egg you get, it's ALL exciting!
