Our First EGG!


We are thrilled to announce that we have our first egg!  You can see it in the photo above, right next to the golf ball.  We started raising these chickens four months and one day ago.  This morning, our first prize for all our efforts showed up in one of our nesting boxes.  This one little egg makes me feel like we officially have the start of our own little homestead.  It’s a great feeling to realize that you must be doing something right.  I rewarded the girls with some fresh dill.  I can’t wait to see what other color eggs we get!

I had to brave this big mama (or still possibly a rooster) to get to the egg.  She/he likes to hang out on top of the nesting boxes… 

Today’s harvest:


Early morning happiness!
