We had an unusually warm January day today, so I thought I would take advantage of it and work in the chicken coop a bit. Nothing seemed unusual or amiss when I went out. Larry was crowing as he so often does, just to annoy me it seems (he is supposed to be a hen afterall!). But otherwise everything looked normal, the chickens were spending the afternoon outside, waiting to see if I had brought out any special treats for them.
But when I went inside the coop, I found them. Three beautiful brown eggs!
I was shocked that I have eggs this early, I was really thinking it might be several weeks away. What a nice surprise!
