Our first egg!!!!

Yay, the first egg (and check out our ladies in the background!)

Do you know which egg is the one our chickens laid?

Just had to post it - last night one of our almost 5 month old Buff Orpingtons laid their very first egg! I heard commotion in the chicken coop, but lately they've been pretty loud at times so I didn't really think much of it. Matthew went out, and lo and behold he came back in holding our very first egg! It was little, and brown, but quite tasty! By the way, do you know how to tell what color a chicken's egg will be? They have a small patch on the side of their head near their 'ears', and that is almost always the exact color their eggs will be - pretty cool!
