First egg!

I'm so excited!  We got our first egg today!!

It's small, but it's got a strong shell and it's a great shape.  Here's a comparison to a store bought egg-

Needs cleaned off some more, I know.  Isn't it awesome?  It's silly how excited dh and I were.  We were out and I went to open the pen to let the chickens free range, and there it was in the corner!

Thanks! It's just too bad that my youngest got a hold of it! She was convinced there was a baby chicken inside, lol. So while I was on the phone with her grandma, she pushed a chair over to the counter and climbed up, got it out of the egg carton, and broke it open! Oh well, plenty more to come :D
