First Blue Egg!

Yay! One of our Araucanas finally started laying. We got blue egg #1 today!

Our first blue egg ever adds a great splash to the daily collection.
And, as chance would have it, Thing #2 decided to catch that very chicken this weekend.

We call her "Black Beard."
Thing #2 and Black Beard the Araucana.
She has some great golden feathering.

Close up, she looks like some sort of mythical prey bird you'd see in Greek legends.

Exciting times! We have two blue eggers in the flock right now, and another 8 in the chick-u-bator. Soon, we'll have LOTS of blue eggs! That will be an exciting time.
