We Have our First Egg!

Posted on

Yes I would first like to point out that our internet is momentarily on, but as the phone company said 8th at end of business day; we are guessing it will go at any time.

Now on to today’s BIG news:

This is our very first egg!  I found it this morning when I decided on a whim to go check out the yard, thinking that the girls aren’t looking very closely and found it in the yard not the coop.  Under the outdoor roost.  It is a medium sized egg so we are figuring it came from the Polish Crested hen or maybe the Barred rock hens we have.  So I am setting up a schedule with the kiddo’s on a “chicken check” a couple times a day just to ensure that we will get all the eggs that the hens produce.  …also because I don’t want them eating them, they didn’t seem to notice this one when I went in to get it.

As for the root cellar… it looks like we will be waiting a bit to dig in it as it is 1/4 full of water from the rain we got and we are due more rain today… Yep, we need it… but this morning on the way to the hen house I commented to Silver that with the fog and light it looked like early spring outside.  Being that it is still the “dog days” of summer that’s an odd occurrance to me.

That’s it for now as I want to get this in before our net does go down.

Be Well, Be Safe and Blessed Be…
