The first egg. All speckled and a lovely blue-green(though it doesn't read as such in the photographs).
Marie has been steadily laying, and with the exception of a couple eggs that ended up on the floor of the coop and got cracked, we've managed to accumulate an entire dozen! Our first dozen eggs from our backyard! I'm so excited! I'm planning on making the cutest, tiniest deviled eggs ever.
In chronological order, top-left to lower-right. Once again, the colors don't read true; the eggs shift from a dark blue-green to the palest porcelain blue.
I put all twelve in a tiny bowl.
I find them enchanting.
