"Egg-citing" news!

Our four baby chicks have been growing all summer.
They've really become a part of our 'family'.

These silly girls have learned to explore the entire backyard.
The patio is one of their favorite spots to visit.


Then one mid morning we lost Henrieatta :(
Vivian was so upset she was crying.
Rolli was determined to find her.

And guess where we found her!
She was tucked as far under the shed as possible...
sitting on 2 eggs!!

Rollin and Vivian with our first eggs!
They insisted on getting their "egg baskets" for collecting.

Two perfect eggs from our proud laying hen Henrietta.

Then we found 2 more eggs in the coop...
then 2 more the next day!
I think the baby chicks are all grown up now :)

Our first backyard grown egg breakfast!

Who's hungry?!

After breakfast Rolli and Vivian went outside to say "Thank you!" to the chickens.

And we started our day with bellies full of yummy protein!
