My Chickens

We have 30 chickens that we get our own farm fresh eggs from. This spring we purchased 7 Americana chicks and I've been watching them grow and anxiously waiting for that first egg all summer. For those who aren't familiar with chickens, Americanas are the breed known for laying blue or green eggs in various shades ranging from khaki green to robin egg blue. Well today is the day, finally not just one special colored egg but two! I'm very excited! I'm always amazed at how awesome our God is at tucking away some very special surprises in unexpected places. To most people a chicken laying a blue egg might be no big deal but I appreciate my Creator for each little uniquely added touch.

Of course I had to take a picture next to one of our other chicken's eggs for comparison.
