Elspeth Delivers!



They were all out free ranging today when Elspeth went into the 'big girl' hen house. I found her in the nest box and thought she might be napping. Turns out, she was laying her first egg. Go Elspeth!

Hmm... that's a good question! She laid another today. They're so tiny.

Beautiful egg. And I agree with Teresa, high five the chicken =)

It looks pretty! How can she make it so perfect at her first ever time! :)

Pullet eggs do tend to be tiny, but they'll get large soon (usually...we do have one that still lays tiny eggs). :)
