This morning we had let the chickens out to roam the yard. This is something we do once or twice a week so it's not unusual but typically the chickens roam together. I noticed there were only three chickens so naturally I worried that perhaps a cat had gotten the fourth. But I found her sitting in a nesting box, squawking. I suspected she was laying an egg, so later when I saw all four out again, I went and checked. Sure enough, an egg was had. I think (hope?) the first egg is smaller than later eggs, because this one sure is small!
