    Well, it seems we're not the only folks who got their first egg this morning! We have had chickens since last July, but they matured right as their winter strike started... Last week, we decided that they were just NEVER EVER going to lay.

    Then, after much screeching and restlessness from the girls this morning.. There was a perfect little blue egg in the nest.

    Honestly, we are a little freaked out about the thought of eating it. Should we boil it? Fry it? Just keep staring at it?

    Chickens are cool. [​IMG]

    We poked a pinhole in our first egg and drained it. We still have the shell, 8 years later
