Eggs!

On Christmas day, our hens gave us the gift of our very first egg! I would have posted this exciting news earlier, but I could not locate our camera cable to get a picture to this post. So we now have over a dozen eggs, and the picture is of our first six. They are all different sizes and shades of light brown, and they are wonderful. Now that the hens have made it inside to the cozy area Ryan made for them in the lean to, they can lay to their heart's content. We're not quite ready to sell the eggs yet because they are mostly small, but we will be soon. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season! Those of you in Iowa, it's now time for the long haul until March...

Can you produce turkey eggs as well? Or is it totally counter to the process of raising turkeys to eat? (Carrie wants to know. )
