First Eggs

Today, I took a small step for chicken-kind, but a huge leap forward towards a sustainable food source.

It happened.

Eggs.

Not one, but two!!

Two of my 25 week old Rhode Island Red pullets left two eggs, perfect and clean, in the nest box/bucket like old pros.

These eggs are the first protein source derived and consumed on the farm. Step one in my global domination plan. Or maybe just in my sustainable harvest plan. Regardless, I am very pleased (and full).

Congrats, Daun! I used to get eggs from the barn I boarded at last year -- farm-fresh are the best!

I'm late replying to this, but YEEEHAH!

Are they not the best eggs you've ever tasted? I've never forgotten the taste of real fresh eggs!
