First Egg!

Found yesterday morning right in the nesting box. Yay!

There was only one egg- I wonder which chicken it was? You can't really tell from the photo but it's a small 'training' size egg. I've been learning that it's normal for many chickens to initially lay small eggs.

The egg is still in the fridge. I kind of want to poach it to preserve its fresh, eggy flavor.

Perhaps in a miso broth with some chopped bok choy and ginger?

I call them practice eggs. Aren't they cute?! Congratulations on your FIRST!! Finding eggs in the nest never gets old.

Thanks Rachel! And I think I learned about 'practice eggs' from reading your comments on HOMEGROWN.ORG :)

You are my chicken guru!
