First post and a tiny egg.

This is my first blog, and I honestly don’t know how I’m going to be able to come up with enough things to write about. I guess it’s a good thing that we have the chickens and goats because they certainly keep life interesting, and they’ll be the main focus of this blog.

I used to write a lot as a teenager and into my early twenties, and it was something that I loved doing. I don’t know, but there’s just something about sitting down and expressing yourself and getting lost in a story that you’ve written. I’ve gotten away from that, but I’m hoping that this blog will bring a love of writing back to me. Anyways, on to the second part of this first post. . . the tiny egg.

We occassionally get small eggs from our young hens that are just starting up their egg laying career, but never one as small as the egg today. I’m assuming it’s from one of our younger Silkie girls. Eggs like it are typically called, “fart egg”. You can think of it as a hiccup in the egg laying machine that is a hen.
