A few pictures of our first egg ever (pictured next to a store bought egg for size and color comparison)!
It’s from our Aruacana… the green egg layer! The egg is dirty because, she had quite a lot of trouble with it, she got egg-bound. It’s something that can sometimes happen to young hens when they first start laying eggs. We actually had to put her in some warm water and “help” it out. I felt so bad for her! I am actually a little worried about her. I keep watching her, and trying to keep her from getting infected…. not an easy feat with a dirty bird like a chicken.
We decided not to eat the egg either… we weren’t sure how long it was stuck, so we fed it to Josie. But I am excited to try the next one!
The eggs will get bigger over time… it may take a couple months, but they should get as big as the eggs you can get at the store. I think the color is so cool though!
