Last Thursday I was cleaning the coop and one of our chickens (the Golden Comet) was acting so strange. She was following me around and was desperately trying to sneak out of the coop. I had a feeling she was looking for a place to lay.
When I went out to the coop Friday afternoon, this is what I found waiting for me!

Clearly the nesting boxes Jackson built were not to her liking.

I knew I'd be eggcited (sorry, I couldn't resist) to find that first egg but I was so proud, you'd think I laid it! I yelled at Jackson to bring the camera so I could capture the moment. She's been laying an egg a day and now I'm just waiting for the others to follow her lead

I'll let you know how they taste!
