Our First Egg!

This morning, I stopped in to say hello to the chickens and found one of my Cuckoo Marans

making herself a nest!

This evening, while I was making dinner, there was a ruckus in the coop and my boy said,"Sounds like someone's laying an egg!"  We rushed down to find this beautiful thing

Our first egg from one of the 35 chicks we got back in March! Yay.

Her reward (and that of any one of the chicks that would eat them, one by one out of my hand)  was the last of the peas on the vine (except for what I'm saving for seed next time)

Even the ever suspicious, Sir, my French Blue Maran rooster tried one!

It's a good day to be a farmer...
