8/21/10 So post wedding and triathlon I needed to seriously catch up on sleep and just chill out for awhile. Jeff has done most of the chicken and garden care for the last month or so….what a great husband. But today was a big mile stone in our self reliance, urban farming lives….one of the chickens laid her first egg!!!! Over the past few days we noticed that they seemed really pissy!!! And while I was at the office, Jeff called to let me know the good news. He said that it sounded like they had gotten into a big fight and when he went downstairs to break it up there was an egg!!! Notice how small it is compared to the store egg.
