Over lunch, the chickens, very restless in their pen, started making a huge fuss, with lots of loud clucking and assorted chicken noises. We looked over, and all appeared fine, so thought no more of it. Later this afternoon, when we checked on them, we found an egg!!!!
We don't know for sure, but we suspect our precocious bossy biddy, Hyacinth, seen here, laid her first egg. The chickens are just 16 weeks old. We weren't expecting eggs for several more weeks. Now, the big question, fried or scrambled?
