first eggs!


my sweet ole chickies just started laying their first eggs!  these are the buff orpingtons.  the first ones start out small but get bigger as they get used to laying.  it's always real exciting when they lay their first egg.  the araucanas should be laying soon, too.

momma's so proud.
thanks girlz!
