We got our first eggs!!!
Our chickens will be 22 weeks old tomorrow and today is the day we got our very first egg. The brown one was the first one we found and I think it came from Margo. She was REALLY chatty when I opened their coop door and there it was! 🙂 The second I know came from Camilla as she is the only one of our chickens who will lay a white egg. So exciting! The first egg from a chicken is a pullet egg and is smaller than they will lay as they get older. You can see the size difference n the photos below when compared to an egg from the store labeled as “large.”
So, we now have 5 pullets and 2 hens. Woo-hoo! I can’t wait to see what is in the next boxes tomorrow… 🙂
