The $700.00 egg

08-18-eggs

Gene got to gather, our very first "official" egg. Yes, we've been getting eggs for a while now, but those are from chickens that we traded the ducks for.... so it was a bit like cheating.

shhhh.

However, our own chickens have now laid 2 eggs. Tanner calls them "fun size" (they'll get bigger). No idea who it is, as there are 18 identical barred rock hens, and several of them look like layers. I have a feeling we'll be seeing a lot of eggs coming up soon.

I once heard a saying, "the first egg is $700.00, after that they're all free." That's probably about right too.

Now, who wants the worlds smallest omelet?

lol in your main pic there for a moment I thought you named your chickens before they hatched... or is it count your eggs before they hatch? im so confused on chicken metaphors...!

Congrats on those eggs - once your friends and the whole community know you have eggs and lots, everywhere you go they will be leaving you empty egg cartons lol
