Oh frabjous day!

It's finally happened!  Not one, but two of the girls started laying on the very same morning.  Though I know it is but a simple fact of life (I am chicken, I lay egg), somehow it feels as if the girls laid these eggs as a personal favor just for us.  The blue one for me -- I found it just to the outside of the three little nest boxes I set up in the hen house (I'm sure the ladies will improve their aim over time).  The brown one for Isaac -- he found it nestled on the ground next to the feeder.  We are jubilant this morning.

"Oh frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!
He chortled in his joy." 
(Lewis Carroll)
