Beverly Lays An Egg…..

If you’ve been keeping up with Eggwatch 2013 then you’ve either bitten all your fingernails off, or totally forgotten that we were still waiting on our last lady to start laying.  (We’ve done a little of both fingernail biting and forgetting.)  But yesterday, late afternoon, little Beverly Clucky waddled up the ramp in the coop and laid her first egg.  It was cute.  And tiny.  And we couldn’t be more proud of our girl.

Keith posted this shot of the egg on Instagram yesterday.  Isn't it perfect?

Beverly Clucky: then and now.  Left: Coming to her new home on June 8, and the day after her first egg Sept 23, 2013.

They grow up so fast.  It’s hard for this Mama to believe.  So now we’re up to getting 4 eggs a day.  That will slow a little bit as the days get shorter and colder, but for now we’re enjoying the plenty…and giving a few away as well.  I’ll leave you with some photos from some fun we had playing in the back yard today, and a funny video of Louisa the chow-hound demanding her snacks that Mary-Hall actually shot when she was in town last week.  Enjoy!

Me and sweet Beverly.  She's the shyest of them all, but such a snuggly one if you can catch her.
