At least someone has been making something!

Oh hello chickens! Margot, why are you inside on this sunny day?
Let's have a look through the egg door! What's this under your fluffy bottom?!
A lovely little egg! Still warm!
Margot laid her first egg yesterday - it was outrageously eggciting! I was so proud of her! I think she was a bit confused though. I ran screeching to get Adam, and we both held the warm little egg. We were hoping she would do another one today, so we could both have one for our afternoon tea, but she didn't, so we shared this one - hard boiled for 6 minutes, shelled and then eaten, half each, with a little salt and pepper - yum!

There's something very satisfying and exciting about producing your own food. I've just started growing potatoes, tomatoes, courgettes, peppers, beetroot and carrots. I'd LOVE to have eggs from my own chickens. P x x x

Oh the look of glee on your face has made my day!! How truly exciting! I remember the same moment when our ducks (years ago when we had them) laid their first egg...yay!! Nothing like a fresh egg, is there? :)

We'll have to come back when you've got a box full and sample!
It was SO eggsciting.

I'm so jealous of your chickens and eggs! And the eglu is a wonderful colour! I don't have a garden right now - so not even fresh veggies :(. Fortunately my boyfriend lodges with an elderly lady in a huge house with a garden the size of a football field (quite literally!) with lots of fresh veggies and fruit this time of year. It's pretty neat. I would like to keep chickens one day. And a sheep or three.
