Sunday was the day! The day that we got our first egg. We weren't really expecting anything for another month or so, but when I went to close up the hens for the night, there it was! Since we weren't sure how long that one had been out there, we did not eat it. The next morning, though, I went out to the coop and found another that had just been laid. It made a very tasty breakfast.
I'm not sure who exactly is laying the eggs at this point, but I do know it's either Mary Jo or Julia. After waiting all of these months for the girls to grow up and start producing eggs, it's lots of fun to finally be getting some. If you ever need a good object lesson in patience, get some baby chicks.
