Green Eggs & Ham
Well I wouldn't say green eggs and ham...it was more like green egg and bacon! I guess that's close enough...well it was for the kids anyway!
Do you remember the chickens we hatched earlier this year? Well, a couple of them were an Ameraucana mix (mom was an Ameraucana and Dad was a Rhode Island Red) and one of them laid her first egg today! We, especially my bouncing babies, were so excited when we saw that it was green. I'm thinking she was a little stressed laying her first egg with all the rain we've been getting because she laid her egg right in the mud. Poor thing, better luck tomorrow now that she knows what's happening.
