First egg...from a chicken!!
Doesn't it look beautiful? I never thought I would be so excited about something so simple. Wednesday we left the chickens in the run most of the day until I got home from work and let them free-range for a little bit before dark, but nothing. Today I let them out of the coop before I left for work thinking they must not be ready yet.
Tonight when I went down to the run to close it up for the evening, I opened up the lid of the nesting boxes and there it was, tucked down in the corner of the straw. Not the biggest egg, but it is the first. No idea which chicken laid the egg, but it is a start. Let the eggs begin!!
