It doesn't seem that long ago that they looked like this:
And now, they are all grown up...
And somebody's even laying eggs!
It's the littlest one there, in the front of the carton. I guess we won't be buying too many more cartons of eggs!
Congratulations! How exciting--there is just something so magical about producing your own food. I think one of the first posts I read on your blog was about your chicks. And now they are all grown up. Thank goodness children take longer to grow up than chickens!
Fabulous! Fresh eggs for breakfast-Enjoy!
Congratulations! We got our first egg a little over a year ago, and I still think it's amazing and thrilling.
How egg-citing! I know I know! That's great fresh eggs all the time.Congrats!
Oh, wow! That is so awesome...now you can REALLY have some fun with the "which came first" argument at your house!!
Susan - it does seem to have gone by in a blink. You're so right about kids! And, that seems kind of like a blink, too :-)Dana - yes, this egg was quickly incorporated into some excellent cottage-cheese pancakes. Soooo good!Lise - welcome! I'm glad to hear that the thrill of egg-gathering never wears off.Rana - somebody had to say it, right? :-)Topsy - we've traveled that road before, it seems that eggs were around while the chickens were still dinosaurs... you wouldn't believe the eye-rolling that ensued when I brought up this age-old question, back when we got the chicks. That's what a houseful of budding paleontologists gets you, I guess!Thanks all, for sharing in our joy -Karen
