A green egg!

This green egg did not make it to a nesting box.

Exactly two days after we received our first eggs from the girls, today we were greeted with another gift.

A green egg.

Nellie: "I must say that I laid my egg in a nesting box. Not in the middle of the run, like Gigi!"

I knew Gigi was holding out. With eggs from Nellie and Loretta, it was easy to do the math. Two brown eggs meant we were waiting on Gigi’s coveted green egg.

Our first green egg, plus a light brown one from Nellie.

In her showgirl style, Gigi bypassed the nesting box and laid her olive egg in the middle of the run.

Show off!

Nellie also produced another light brown egg today. That’s two eggs in two days for her. I’m wondering if that’s why she’s been so cranky and bitey lately. Hmmm.

So far the eggs are really small, but that soon will change. Before long, they should grow to medium egg size.

You know, green eggs and ham is starting to sound really good.

  1. Dr. Seuss was right?!
    A green colored egg is fine….but I still wouldn’t eat ham that has turned green!
    I had to read “Green Eggs and Ham” so many times when I worked in preschool.
    I could recite the text in a park, in the dark, on a train, in the rain….and I would never have to open the book, Sam I Am! That particular children’s book just about drove me crazy! 🙂
