the joy of an egg

Hooray for Evangeline!

Our first egg in SIX WEEKS has arrived!

Very uncharacteristically, Evangeline greeted me at the fence by squatting down to be pet. It hasn’t happened in a long time that a chicken has been interested in any contact, and though I’ve been mourning the loss of sweetness among the flock, I just thought it was some “teenage phase” of chickenhood. But my earlier instincts were right all along–I’ve always thought that the ones who lay eggs were the snuggliest.

I haven’t checked the coop for eggs in over a week. But when Evangeline hunched down for a pat, I went straight to the egg door and VIOLA! A beautiful blue egg.

Evangeline, you go girl!
