An egg-citing thing happened!

Yes, I discovered our first two eggs in the chicken house this morning. I am so excited as I did not expect any eggs until at least November. They were both brown eggs so I know that they did not come from the Easter Egger or the Hill Roamer hens. Most likely they are from my two Welsummer hens as they are about 4-5 weeks older then the rest of the chickens.

It was nice that there was two eggs as both Evan and McKayla were able to have one to hold. McKayla wanted to cook hers right away so we settled on pancakes for breakfast and used her egg in the batter. Evan wanted to put his back in the coup so we could have a baby chicken but I finally convinced him that we should wait until next Spring for baby chickens.
