Lookie what Bob brought in to show me today!
He came in from letting the chickens out for their daily roam around the area with his hand closed. I hesitated to accept his proffered gift, because we have different ideas about what one should hold in their hand! He turned it over and Wow!
We were like new parents! Well, not that excited, but pretty pleased that the chickens have finally produced an egg.
It's pretty small, I have it in an egg box with two "large" size regular chicken eggs. "Our" eggs will increase in size and number soon. How cool is that?
Here's the gang. I forget if I posted an actual picture of our own little "flock".
We've gotten used to each other now. They roam during the day and know enough to come in to their coop for a safe night's sleep. Just as it gets dark, Bob goes out and shuts the door.
Between the chickens and the gardens, we're becoming a bit more self sufficient. It's a nice feeling.
Well, I'm off to make a number of vessels for an order. Just finished all the soap beads and they're ready to go out. I have a set or two of regular beads that I want to finish up before "Colonial Day" in East Berlin on September 9. Plus, of course, there's always soap to make and wrap.
