The Chicken or the Egg

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
If you've ever been presented with this question and found it far too deep a scientific and/or philosophical conundrum to confidently answer correctly, you can cut that silly nonsense out right now, the answer is, the egg. In our case, of course, the reverse is true, the chickens arrived about a month ago and the first egg arrived yesterday.

Designing and building the chicken palace and then meeting the chickens for the first time and having them move in was great fun but it was nothing compared to the excitement of opening up the chicken coop yesterday and finding our first egg! I haven't yet figured out which chicken is our little overachiever but hopefully they will all follow her example quite soon, there was another egg there today!

The egg was summarily executed by being immersed in boiling oil for four minutes and then eaten, a first egg sacrificial offering to the egg gods if you will, it was delicious.

How fabulous, I want one!! But you haven't told us the names of the lovely hen ladies - I vote Negrita for the black one, as a homage to my Latin American sisters :-)
