The First Egg

It's Monday! Time for our weekly installment of Radical Homemaking. Want to learn more about what that means, check out THIS post and THIS post. 

It's coming of age week here at La Maison Boheme for our backyard flock. Etta, one of our Rhode Island Reds, laid her first and second egg this weekend! The girls are now 24 weeks old and we're coming out of a pretty cold and icy six week stretch. Spring is eminent and the hens are sensing it's time to lay. We're so excited to start pulling breakfast out of our back yard everyday!

Below is a photo of me with Etta, taken about two months ago.

And just for fun, here are some shots of Gladys, our Golden Laced Wyandotte.
I think she'll be the next to lay.
