I've thought of a million different titles for this post……..but WOOHOO seems to describe it best. Or…….maybe WE GOT OUR FIRST EGG is better. Not as exciting. Whatever.
Sometime yesterday between 7:30 am and 6:00 pm one of the girls laid an egg. And we were totally oblivious. Didn't even hear the strange noises chickens make when laying.
Chickens may be dumb but they're not so dumb that they don't take clues from the wooden eggs we put in their laying boxes. The egg on the top is wood…..the one below it is the real deal. Small…..but that's to be expected for the first few times. I'll take it.
Was it you Queenie? We'll never know. Bummer.
So…….at 19 weeks the girls are laying. WOOHOO I say again. Bring 'em on! I think I'll reward the girls and let them out in the garden tomorrow. Pics coming!
