I’ve long watched other chicken-bloggers report their first eggs, and now it’s finally my turn!
When I came home from work today, I went out into the backyard to have a look at the garden and the chickens, as I normally do. On a whim, I opened up the door to the roost to check it was all OK. There in the sawdust was an egg!
I grabbed the girls and got them to come out and see. Everyone was very excited.
Megan was cooking dinner, so we took it inside and cooked it up straight away. The yolk really sat up high in the pan, and the white stayed together (like store-bought free-range eggs, only even more so) rather than running everywhere (like cage eggs). Hannah ate the white, and Megan and I shared the yolk. Yum!
Of course, this egg came from Molly the leghorn. Still no sign of eggs from the silkies!
