We are thrilled to announce the historic arrival of the first egg to be laid at Meadowsweet Cottage!
The nest box was empty so I thought I was mistaken about hearing an egg-laying bawk. As I refilled the chicken feeder, I happened to glance up and realized the silly girl laid her egg on top of the coop! Which of our four hens? We suspect Norma Jean because her comb and wattle are largest and reddest. Not because she's my favorite, not at all.
The egg is a lovely deep brown, very petite in size compared to our large store-bought eggs.
Proud chicken mama,
Joining My Romantic Home for my best show-and-tell ever!
