Waiting

Our new batch of chickens we got in June should start laying eggs any day now.  They arrived in the mail as day old chicks.  I remember it was a ninety degree day.  The kids were so excited to open that box up.  Thankfully all ten were fine.  Now they look full grown.  I keep checking every morning for that first egg.  We love raising chickens.  We got our very first batch over two years ago.  They roam our yard pecking for a bug or worm or sometimes scraps from the kitchen.  The yolks are orange in color.  Nothing beats a fresh egg.  Well maybe, chocolate.
