Guess What I Found?!?!?!?!




AAAHHHHH!!!! An EGG!!!!! Needless to say, I am VERY excited about this. I was beginning to fear that our chickens would not start laying until the Spring. Not good. But, when I went in to the coop to check on them today, I looked down and saw this:




The littles are quite excited as well.









Bud gets chicken duty this coming week, so he will be able to check for new eggs in the morning. He looks excited about it, doesn't he? (Guess what, he really is!! Although, we'll see how the two of them feel about "chicken duty" in six months or so. :) )

i would be excited too. we had a few chickens in my grandparents' house. my grandpa would always ask me to go with him and see how many eggs the hens have in the basket. those were the days... i miss my grandpa.

Oh, YAAY! You have a real chicken farm now! How EGG-SIGHTING! Never seen a BLUE chicken egg, before, though. Great pic of JT!
