I didn't plan on posting anything tonight, but when I got home and checked on the chickens, guess what I found lying in the nesting box?
The first egg!!!!
A small but perfectly shaped pinkish brown egg lying right next to the wooden egg I had placed in the nesting box several weeks ago. Now wasn't she just the smartest chicken to know exactly where to lay it?!
I was so excited. I congratulated the brilliant girl on her accomplishment and took my new prize to the kitchen where I fried it with just a sprinkling of salt and pepper.
The yolk was almost orange, and it was delicious. We are now in business. Can't wait for the next one!
