Hello Garden Gals and Guys! I am writing this post on the eve of my 44th birthday. My chickens gave me an early birthday present and I couldn’t be more EGGcited!!!! Yup, you guessed it…EGGS! We weren’t expecting them until October, but knew that they may come earlier than expected. The chickens were exactly 5 months and 1 day old when I found the eggs on Tuesday!
Here are my first two eggs. The girls missed the nesting box the first time, but I didn’t care.
And the next day, I got three more, which I was so excited about I didn’t take a picture of them. Today I went out and found two more. This time the girls used the nesting box.
Here are some shots of me and the girls after they laid their first eggs.
Here are all seven of my eggs. They are small right now because they are pullet (young chicken) eggs. However, each day they get a little bigger. I’m going to wait until I have a full dozen and then make a nice breakfast for everyone!
Here’s a little video of me finding my first eggs. It will also posted on my YouTube Channel in just a few moments.
Well, that’s all for now garden gals and guys! Until next time….
Audra – Congratulations on getting your first eggs. Now you have to raise pigs so you can have bacon and eggs.
Happy birthday Lil Sis
Yay! Your family will LOVE those fresh eggs. Once you start eating them it will be difficult to go back to store bought eggs.
Thanks, big brother! I will get the pig as soon as I have a farm.
Blake, I won't be going back to store bought! 🙂 I buy eggs from a farm right now and love them. I can't wait to taste my own!
