Our chickens laid their first egg on July 31st, so it will forever be declared “Egg Day” in the Louws Household. We aren’t exactly sure which chick laid it first, but we’re guessing it might have been Millie since she’s the biggest.
You can see how small the eggs are when they first come out. This is a regular size egg cup. They have increased in size every day they lay. Since the first day they started laying we have gotten 1-2 eggs each day.
Here are photos of us holding our first egg. Side note: it was right away in the morning, hence why we look like we just rolled out of bed.
We cooked up our tiny egg and shared it…two bites each…look how yellow the yolk is!
