so exciting! so exciting!
i've waited a long time for one of these so you can imagine my surprise when i saw this little dude sitting in the chook's doghouse sunday after church.
the first eggs are really small. see it next to a regular egg.
(please go easy on my photo skills-i'm not the artist in the family)
when i get around to cooking it, i will take a picture of it's lovely yolk.
in other chicken news...
i attempted to segregate mr. woo from the hens yesterday and possibley wring his neck. and damn, if he didn't piss me off enough to do so. he's always the last to go in the dog house and always the first to run out. this time he got out and into my corn.
i was mad. frustrated beyond all reason (you try catching an aggressive rooster). i could grabbed a rock and stoned him to death that's how frustrated i was. by the time i wore him out, or scared him into submission, i couldn't do anything. there he was, cowering under some branches, squawking out of fear and i couldn't do anything except grab him by his feet and take him to the other cage.
i think it was his warm body that had me thinking i couldn't take the life of this critter.
i will try again later.
