The eggs are here!! I have been gathering at least one a day now since Saturday. There is one above in a little egg cup that was sent to me by Debbie of My Vintage Daydreams. She is such a sweetheart.
Right here was my first REAL egg. One with a shell. I ate it for breakfast right away.
The yolks are so golden and the egg white is nice and firm, not all runny and watery.
Here is Q with the first egg she gathered. She wanted me to cook it for her. When I saw she had barely ate any of it I asked her why and she said, "Because it tastes like chicken breath." I died. Does not surprise me as she doesn't really like eggs.
These are my two girls that are laying.
Look at those wide hips now to pass all those eggs.
The first eggs were so tiny but you can see from day to day they are getting a little bigger. Some of the chickens are quite squawky in the mornings now before they settle into a nesting box. I love the sound but I sure hope it does not bother my neighbors. I find it a more pleasing noise than when my dog barks but you never know how other folks might feel about it. Chickens are legal in our city or at least hens, but I don't want to bother anyone.
