AN EGG! AN EGG!

So, at the ripe old age of five and a half months, someone laid an egg this morning……I would have pictures of it actually in the coop (NOT in our carefully prepared nest box) but I was too excited!

We are going to eat it with the kids this afternoon when they get home, but I was so excited that I called Dudepastor just as they had taken off for school. They turned around, came back, and I took the egg out to the car to show them….and I promise, the look on my almost-8-year old’s face was worth all the time, energy, organic feed, and leftovers we put into these chickens for these past five months!

Will update on how it tastes later….but wow, who knew a little egg could be this thrilling??

UPDATE: yum. Super duper yum, creamy and delicious, with no salt or butter, just in the pan. All worth it.
