Today was the big day after a week or so of thinking about it our Leghorn laid our first egg!
For the past week or so my husband has been obsessively checking in on the chickens – we knew it could be any day now. This morning Foghorn the leghorn started sing the egg song (seriously look it up – its a thing LOL) and scratching around in the nest boxes so we were very hopeful and sure enough when we went out to check on her – there it was – our first fresh egg from our own hens 🙂
Still warm and actually larger than I expected. The proud mom is doing fine and got some yummy treats for her hard work
I have been home sick all weekend but I am actually almost glad I caught this wretched cold from my last business trip – since that was the only reason I was at home today to witness this momentous occasion LOL
More pics 🙂
