it's about time!

Briar's chicken, Antarina, is finally worth her weight in chicken scratch. Her reign as "The Dreaded Bitch" of the chicken yard now is softened slightly by her new ability. After ten months of life, she has FINALLY layed an egg.
How do I know it is her's? We had bought her specific egg because it was blue. Araucanas and Ameraucanas both lay uniquely coloured blue-green eggs. Now, she is laying them!!! (Actually only one so far...but we are beyond excited!)
So on tomorrow's breakfast menu there will be blue-green egg....and maybe a few brown or beige eggs. We're placing bets on whether it'll taste any different...If it's anything like it's mama, it'll be sour. ;)

This is the reason I want chickens of my own. I'm feeling very excited for the new layer!
