Egg-citement

Yesterday when I went to shut the chooks in the hen house for the night, I opened the door and there was an egg lying in the middle of the floor! It's the first one laid by one of our four birds. Based on expectations set by the breeder, I thought they would start laying in July or later. It's a proper brown speckled Barnevelder egg, albeit quite small at 49g. How exciting.
