I'm stupidly excited This is our first time having chickens, so it's very much our first egg! They're 20 weeks, I wasn't quite expecting it yet, I thought it would take another week or two, even a month. But we do have buff orpingtons and black giants, so I guess they are good layers!

It's small, but the shell is nice and hard and it's a great shape!

I just had to share! Dh and I went out to check on the garden and let the girls out to roam for awhile, and there it was!

All good and perfect gifts...

Yay! How fun! I can only dream along while reading of your first egg since we're far from having a place where we can have chickens, but it sounds so fun. How many do you have? 20 weeks, huh? very cool!

Gloria in excelsis Deo, indeed!
