After many weeks of wondering exactly how old our chooks were and more importantly when the big event of our first egg was going to happen we were starting to grow impatient. I was also mindful of the fact that winter is coming and as we have pure breed chooks, not commercial layers there was a very real possibility that they could go on cold weather strike and not lay until spring.
That little strangely coloured egg on the right is from our Pekin bantam Bok-Bok. I thought it was another chicken who produced the lovely egg but I practically caught Bok-Bok leaving another this morning and it is the same greeny-blue.
Who knew such a little egg could bring such excitement and joy to our house??
