First Egg

The hens stopped laying some time in late summer.  Yesterday White Hen was eating the remains of an egg with a shell so soft, the insides spilled out of it.

But today I found an egg in the nesting box in the coop.  It’s a bit flat on one side, but it’s whole with a hard shell and ready to be cooked for tomorrow’s breakfast.

  1. That first egg of spring is just wonderful, always really EGGciting!!!!! Sorry, couldn’t help myself – I heard the first Spring Peeper frogs of the year near our pond last night, that always gives me a great feeling too.
