I can't imagine there is a better day in keeping hens than the day you find the first egg. After 21 long weeks, our moment finally arrived! A wee little egg, found yesterday morning. The first eggs that young hens lay are small. We have plastic Easter eggs in their nesting boxes to encourage the hens to lay there.
For breakfast today we will cook up our lonely egg for the boys and split it. It's gotta be good. I'm hoping.
We had friends visit the other day . . .
and they fell in love with our hens.
Give us an afternoon with your kids . . .
and we'll have them begging for hens of their own!
Incidentally, we received another wee-little-egg today.
