Oscar Laid an Egg!

Oscar laid an egg!?Turns out Oscar is a girl. A renaming may be in order. Oscarina? Not sure that works. I think she’ll be forever Oscar to us.

Here’s her egg along with a Bantam egg (green one), Buff Orpington egg (brown one), and the beautiful Pekin duck egg. It’s such a pretty white – it’s almost?translucent. Her three sisters, Dilly, Hera, and Quackers should be laying any time now.

Our first duck egg. Another farming milestone.

    Always such an exciting day when someone new lays an egg! I love that little banty egg–hope ours look like that when our little girl starts laying.
