Another "First"

This is an exciting "first" for us here in Logandale. My only regret is that Tibi isn't here to join in the jubilee! We came home from church yesterday, checked on the chickens, and found that one of those beautiful girls had dropped an egg. We weren't expecting them to be "expecting" until late August or September...I'm actually surprised that they could lay anything in this heat, but I guess it can be done. After all, I "laid" both Tibi and Landon in the Nevada August heat many years ago. The eggs start coming out a little small at first, but will get as big as large eggs that can be bought at the store. That's what we wanted, BIG eggs. So you can see that they have a little growing to do!

Congrats! It is great to finally see the fruits of your labors. And when the heck did Landon start looking like a teenager? I feel old.

Vicki said...

Yep, he's getting there...zits and all! He still looks great. Built like a Packard, looks like his dad. Can't get better than that!

Tibi said...

When we lived in Utah, we had 8 hens that laid the most beautiful eggs. We raised them from chicks and then for 3 years had the eggs gathered every morning..in the rain, sleet, snow and sunshine. We provided for my family, my parents and Rebecca's family for the longest time. It was the hardest thing to leave behind when we moved...the dogs, chickens and roosters, horse, rabbits and piglets. Too much fun.
