Eggs, Baby!

I hope everyone had a terrific Thanksgiving (we did!)  and is looking forward to the holidays.  I can't believe Chanukah starts this Sunday night already!  Where did it all go?  I blinked and summer was gone, and then blinked again and it wasn't fall anymore.  They say time flies when you're having fun, but this is ludicrous already.

Anyway, we got a very cool "gift"... over the past week & a half, one (I'm convinced Cher was first) and then another (Lita) chicken started laying!  They've been giving us nearly an egg a day each, one brown, one tan.

And then... and then!  Last night I went to check on the chicklettes and get them in their coop for the night, since they still refuse to go in on their own, the little ninnies, and what did I see... but THREE eggs!

Tan and brown from Lita & Cher, which in total means they've given us 17 eggs so far between them...

... and a GREEN EGG from one of the Araucanas!  I'm betting on Reba; she's bigger than Adele and her little comb got redder faster, so she seems like the mature one.  But either way, a green egg!!!

Go girls!

So this morning, I brought one tan and one brown egg to work, and had myself some incredible scrambled eggs, courtesy of the chicklettes.

Thanks, ladies!
