Surprise!

Our first blue eggs

I didn’t think any of our new pullets would lay in the nest boxes, seeing as how they haven’t stepped foot in the coop since we released them in May. Instead they roost in the aisle of the corncrib. But this afternoon these two little blue pullet eggs lay in the wood shavings underneath the nest boxes.

The girls have each carefully packed an egg, cradled in paper towels inside a Tupperware container, to take for show-and-tell at school tomorrow.

    What a *coordinated* picture! I love our Americauna eggs :) I have ten new Am. pullets in the brooder right now – but they have so outgrown the space that I’m going to have to do that pain in the neck trasition to the regular coop soon.

    Nice ones! I was thinking, “What huge eggs for pullets,” until I realized that those were probably your daughter’s hands, LOL.

    Fabulous! We just started getting blue eggs, too. Have you posted photos of the birds? Ours are Araucana crosses–always interested to see what others look like.

    I love the blue eggs, and I have to agree with Jolie and Shannon about the coordinated photo. Isn’t serendipity great?
