That day came for the first time just yesterday.
These little gals (and one little guy) are
Rhode Island Reds and looked like this when they first arrived...
...and it didn't take long for them to grow.
(This pic was actually taken several weeks ago so I can only imagine how big they are now)
Up until yesterday afternoon, believe it or not, I had never ever tasted honest to goodness farm-fresh eggs before. I know right? So "un-midwestern-girl" of me.
