Updated pictures

A picture says a thousand words. Here are a few pictures that I didn't have time to write about.

We have eggs!

We found our first chicken eggs! We were so suprised because we weren't expecting them for another month. I opened up the coop and saw two beautiful eggs laying in the nest box. I checked the other side of the coop which we usually don't see, and another egg was there. All three eggs were slightly cracked, so we didn't eat or preserve them. The eggs are tiny, but they will get better with time as the chickens mature. It must be all that wonderful garden produce that we are feeding them.
