Guess what?

CHICKEN BUTT!

OK, not quite...

CHICKEN BUTT LAID AN EGG TODAY!!!

Our first egg!

We put straw in the nest boxes two nights ago.  M1 happened to look in them this evening after we got back from eating dinner at a restaurant and found an egg!!  It's as long as a storebought egg, just narrower.  The kids were incredibly excited and promptly searched the doghouse and a couple of other favorite chicken sitting spots to make sure no more were hiding around the yard. 

Didn't find any this time, but...

LET THE EGG HUNT BEGIN!!!

How fun! My grandmother always kept chickens and we loved helping take care of them. :)
