A Look at Our Egg

Way back in December, our hens laid their first egg. I promised pictures and it only took a month. Here's one of the first egg:

Here's the first egg on the griddle. It's a little hard to tell the difference in the picture. The fresh egg is at the top right. It's yolk is rounder and the white hasn't spread out as much. They're pretty tasty, too.

We didn't expect too many eggs in the winter, but they've been laying more and more. I'd say we have an average of seven to eight a day. In theory, they'll lay even more in the spring and summer. So far, we've been managing to eat them all, but I expect we'll start handing out some dozens in the future.
