We got our first egg! I don't care if you are a chicken veteran, but getting your first egg from a new batch of ladies is a mighty fine feeling! I am fairly confident that the egg came from Blackie, our Barred Rock. She has always been bigger than the other girls, and she has the most developed comb.
**Thanks for the well wishes everyone. I am still sick, and just cannot seem to shake this cold. It has like, taken over my body and I am full of aches and creeks 24/7. It really doesn't help my arthritis much. And Jody, thanks for the offer! I will send you an email shortly, but only if you are serious!
