OK. Here’s our story.
You know the story. You get the cute little chicks in May. Everyone “oohs” and “aahs” over them. You nurse them through “crusty butts” and then they become teenagers. You finally move them to the chicken coop that you’ve built out in the yard. And then you wait. And wait. “They” say that chickens go through puberty in about 6 months. September…October…children checking the coop daily…wanting desperately to be the first one to find the very first egg. You start making bets if it’s going to be this morning or that one. And then it happens. Someone finds the first egg! Joyful cheers ripple throughout the family. The six plus months of tender loving care has finally paid off. The first egg has been laid. There is no finer day. We’re so proud of our little ladies. We want to capture this moment. We wanted to show how we all had a hand in bringing this day to fruition. And this is how we did. Yeah!
