the shrine of the 1st egg

1st eggI was heading ‘out’ this morning and running late.  There seemed to be a ‘different’ sound coming from the chicken house.  I said to Mr T, “could you check on the the girls, they seem to be speaking a different language this morning”.

Well, truth be told, we all {gals} speak a little different language when we are giving birth (and I can’t imagine doing that once every, single day).

Yes…yes, we do have our first egg.

  5. Congratulations! The first egg is always a red letter day. We have chickens, too, and I can relate to the excitement. This year we hatched out our own chicks and the first hatch has begun to lay…they are a cross between Rhode Island Red hens and an Americana rooster…they lay green eggs. Alas, we have no ham.
