the first one!!!
yes! elias got the first egg from his chickens...
it has been so super cold for them lately with temperatures in the very low twenties at night. we suspected that this will delay their ability to lay eggs even more...
elias was at a wyandotte breeders club show last sunday, and came home all exited, that his chickens will be laying soon. we did have to switch the food a bit, his "chicken lady" (the breeder who he has the chickens from and takes him under her wings for some more insight into the care of those feathered friends) has helped him to make the needed changes.
so here we go, the "golden" egg. happy elias had to call first his grandpa, as he will be able to sell this one single egg for 20 sfr. to him.
a truly victorious moment for our young enthusiastic farmer.
