Just over two weeks ago I wrote about us purchasing four hens so that we can have our own free range eggs.
Twice daily we have been visiting, cleaning, feeding, letting them out, penning them up for the night and generally making friends with these lovely young ladies.
Today we were rewarded for our efforts.
One solitary egg in the nest. Small beginnings but a promise of things to come.
It was a lovely surprise at the beginning of our day and we are sure to have many more to come.
