Look What We Found!

This morning I was excited to see if there was an egg.  I went out about 6:30.  Nope..no egg.  Gennifer called later and said that Hannah was anxious to see the chicken. So they came over about 10:00.  And when we got out there, look what we found!
One perfect brown egg!!!  We were all pretty excited about that.  I didn't think she would lay one today.  With the move and all. But she did!  After I took Noah to school, I went to the feed store and bought mash and scratch, and feeders.  I also cleaned out her nesting box and put clean cedar shavings in there.  She is going to think she is at The Ritz!
Bright red feeders.
Nice clean box for eggs.
Can't decide if we will keep her name my brother gave her.  "Snackers" or call her something else.  I keep saying "Chicky"  but I think she will stay Snackers.
Thank you for the egg Snackers!!!

Snackers is a great addition to the family. Not only do you get eggs the freshest way possible but it is a great learning experience for the kids too:D
