We got our first egg! I was so excited. I went out to check on the chickens and give them some fresh water and food, and I noticed this one little egg just sitting by itself in the box inside the coop. It’s a little thing, from one of our new Bantam’s. I hope they all start laying soon!
I did put milk crates in the coop for the chickens to lay in, though none have laid in one yet. I’m hoping these new laying boxes will inspire the others to lay! We’ll see. I just lined them with shredded paper, but I’d like to get some straw for them eventually.
We haven’t eaten the egg yet. It’s just chillin’ in the fridge. I’m not sure how long they are good for… anyone know?? I’ll have to look that up. It’s so cool to me though, having a fresh egg from my own backyard chicken!
The first “fruits” from our livestock. We’re on our way…
