eggscuse me please

So Frank and I went for a drive on Saturday and bought four chickens. Rhode Island Red, one year old, already laying.

And this is what we found on Sunday...

How exciting is THAT????
Pretty damn exciting if you ask me.

This is where we went to get them: Weymouth.

Well, not exactly Weymouth... we picked them up from a farm on the way to Weymouth!

And we found two more eggs today. Now if we can just figure out how to keep them happy and stop pecking each other's backsides, we'll be right.

That's awesome -- fresh eggs!
I hope they don't lay so many you can't keep up with them :)

Yahoo! An egg! Your very own egg!

And more and more and more...good for you, and well, good for your hen.

If my experience proves true Down Under, your chickens will quit pecking at each other in a while. It's like a territorial or ranking thing.

I know the excitement, Cecily. I remember discovering my very first nest-lying egg!

May you revel in omelettes and souffl├ęs. Wish I were your neighbor, I'd take extra ones off your hands. :o)

So how do you tell the difference between which ones should be hatched and which ones to eat?

btw, I love fresh eggs!
