A Day of Poultry Firsts

Clockwise from the 12: Ruth, Helen, Honey, Evie, Netty, and Ilse eggs.

Today was a day of firsts in the chicken coop: Helen laid her first egg since she moved back in with our little flock, and all the other girls laid today as well!  That’s right, today was the first day that we collected a half-dozen eggs.  It’s a lovely sight!

    I never cease to be moved by the sight of freshly laid eggs, knowing how hard these “girls” work at doing what it takes to create an egg, and then actually laying one. Truly, each egg is a marvel. Thanks so much for sharing these amazing and lovely “gifts.”
