Obligatory First Egg Photo

My Mister got the nesting boxes built for the chickens earlier this week, and installed them.  They're up kind of high, so we were thinking of adding a ladder so the ladies could get up there easily.  Well, this morning we thought we heard the "I just laid an egg" clucking, and I went and looked, and sure enough, there was a little egg inside the center nesting box.  It amazes me that they know what it's for even though we just barely stuck it in there.  Smart chickens.  

First eggs are always small- here it is next to a grocery store egg.  Hopefully the other ladies start laying soon.  I only have five eggs left in the fridge (plus the tiny one), and I'd love to not have to buy eggs anymore.

Cool! I think it's kinda cute that they're called "ladies." :)
