It finally happened! We have eggs from our chickens!
Most of the hens lay brown eggs, but a couple lay blue-green colored (those are the ones I picked, and that is why I picked them!).
I packed a few in an origami box to give to our awesome next-door neighbors. In part as an apology - these chickens have been bawk-BAWKing a lot as they figure out this whole egg-laying thing. They'd better quit it...
I made french toast today, and here is what they look like compared to a store-bought (though cage-free organic) egg. Three are ours, and one is bought.
They are a little smaller and very orangey!
We tally up the eggs in our egg book as we find them.
Kinda fun to try and figure out who is laying - we sure were excited to see those blue eggs!
