We aren't failures as chicken farmers! And here is our proof...
|Our First Egg Sept 3, 2010|
We got our first egg today. We have three chickens, so we should start seeing three eggs a day real soon.
|Store bought large egg for scale|
The first eggs are supposed to be smaller and light in color to start. But, as you can see it's not much smaller than a store bought egg. We're guessing this is from our Rhode Island Red.
I picked our first pepper today too! I will probably be our only jalapeno, we have a bell growing too and have seen nothing on all our other pepper plants. I have one tomato growing as well...had two, but a hungry deer got to it. I would have a lot of produce right now if it weren't for those six deer who occasionally help themselves to my veggies. Anyone want some venison? LOL I'm joking ;-)
