When I imagined the discovery our very first egg, I pictured a sunny weekend afternoon brimming with natural light. What a wonderful photo op – a perfect little egg nestled snuggly in the coop. Of course this is reality, and today while Jess and I were both at work Levi came home from school, checked on the chickens (what a great kid!), and found the first egg.
He got on his cell phone and called Jess at work to report the exciting news. I’m tickled to know he was so excited to be the one who made the discovery. Of course I didn’t get home until after 9pm, at which point he was in bed. The egg had been precariously perched in the fridge in true teenager fashion and then tragically knocked to the floor.
Without further ado, I present you our first egg (a little worse for the wear):
Chicken of the week award goes to Lenora! This looks like the work of a Leghorn.
