Luna's first egg
On the day that Aaron and I drove an hour south to pick up a Blue Wheaten Ameraucana rooster, my Blue Wheaten Ameraucana pullet laid her first egg.It's little, sprinkled with calcium deposits, and a beautiful pale, sky blue. I never would have guessed, years ago, that chicken eggs could ever make me this happy. I put it in an egg carton next to one of our prettiest sea-foam green Easter Eggers eggs.When I open an egg carton in the morning, I can't help but take a few moments to admire their simple beauty before cracking two into a bowl for breakfast.
