First came the chicken and now after many sleepless nights finally the EGG!
I’m so excited.
I was jumping up and down and squealing with delight when I first saw it.
My husband of course remarked it the most expensive egg he’s ever paid for… but forget him. I finally have an EGG!
Lacey was showing some real signs that she was going to lay. All day she kept going up into the nesting boxes, scratching around and sitting there for awhile. After awhile she would come down, and I would run over to see if she laid. Nope. Then she would go back up and repeat the whole process again and again. Eventually I stopped looking for a few hours. Then I walked back to the coop and found the egg on the ground!!
Even though she didn’t lay it in her nesting box… it was still fun to find!
I mean, just look at that beautiful egg!
The kids were very excited about the egg and after a few biology lessons disappointed that this egg wouldn’t turn into a little chick. It’s always fun to explain how the egg came out and from where.
Brag it up Lacey, you go girl! 🙂
I gave Lacey lots of love all the rest of that evening – she had a tough first day of laying, but she did it!!
So..the big question was what to do with the first egg? Who gets to eat it?
No one, that’s who.
I really just want to frame it.
And it seems a little scary to eat the egg. I know it sounds weird, but we only have purchased white eggs in the past. So once we get a few eggs coming I am going to make something for all our family to enjoy. And we will all take that step together.
This is SOOOO exciting!! My heart is so full with thanks to the Lord for blessing my life through the joys of His beautiful creations. I have realized that these 4 little chickens have brought something into my city life – something wonderful, fun and something to create many memories with my family. Thank you all for encouraging me, giving me advice and kindness along this journey and also reading along with my adventures. I feel so happy! I am so blessed.
Tis a good day friends. A good day.
Food is my love language. But so is saving money. So I like to combine the two a lot and make thrifty make ahead and freeze meals to save time. Because life is busy, and freezer meals can come to the rescue for all of us. And yes, they actually CAN taste good. Read more...
