The first egg

It's rather on the smallish side, as you can see from the three commercial eggs sitting next to it; and it has a smudge of dirt on it, because it was laid outside the nesting box; but it's the first egg we got from a chicken we hatched and raised ourselves (one of the first batch of last summer's chicks), so we are very proud, and feel it's a worthy cause for a little celebration. 

Isn't it the loveliest looking little egg? :-)

Now...who gets to eat it?! :-D You could scramble it I guess, then let the whole family have one bite, haha! Or bake it into a dish and that would do the trick too. Very glad to see the sweet chickens will be a blessing egg-wise now, too!

Hooray! Yes, it's definitely cause for celebration. Fresh eggs taste better than the ones you get in the store. I hope I can have chickens someday.
