Our First Egg

Julie just came into the house holding the first egg to be laid by our chickens. As you can see it's not a very big egg, which is to be expected from chickens that are still technically pullets. We assume that it was laid by one of the Rhode Island Reds, which are known to be early layers. This is very exciting and makes it even more urgent that I actually build some nesting boxes, which project has been delayed by bad weather, bad health, family visits, and other so on.

The picture was taken using my birthday present from Juile, which is a little flexible tripod that you can grip onto things like fence posts and chair rails or use on uneven surfaces.

How appropriate that your first egg was born on your birthday! A fitting tribute to the magnificent chicken house that you have built, and the (no doubt) fine laying boxes to come.
