A long anticipated gift!
After hearing quite the ruckus out in the chicken pen, I went out to check on the ladies. After rounding up one escapee who had flown the fence in search of all my growing veggies, I peeked inside the nesting box just to see if anything was there. And lo and behold, there was! There was quite the buzz of excitement around here, each kid got dibs on who they got to call and tell the news to. Caleb told Auntie “We growed some eggs from our Blacky!” So in the course of 10 minutes, the eggs went from this:
to, sadly, this.
We can hardly wait for more.
They were so delicious and it felt so amazing to have raised these chickens from babies and now to be eating their eggs!
