The other day when my sister went down to the chicken coop, she found a long awaited, lovely, soon-to-be-tasty, surprise! :)
I was a little upset... That she found it, I mean. I have been waiting for these chickens I have nurtured and fed for 6 months to lay eggs, and my sister finds the first one. :P Oh well. :) They are laying regularly now! Both of them. It took Houdini a little longer, because she is so small. But we are SO thankful for fresh eggs! It is so nice to know that the chickens these eggs come from are being well taken care of (At least we are trying! ;)), and not under the less agreeable circumstances that the chickens who lay eggs for the stores go through.
The one on the right is our egg. ;) Compared to brown eggs they don't look very brown, but they are darkening. We ate them this morning for breakfast, and they were delicious!! :)
The proud layer. :)
While I was down there, I decided to snap a few extra pictures of the animals. They have such unique characteristics and thought processes. They are such a joy to watch and observe. ;)
The other day, I finished a bale of hay and accidentally took a piece
of twine along when I was giving the goats their food. So I hung it on the fence
post for a minute.. Clyde was very interested in it! :)
Doesn't Curtis look like a mountain goat up there? He is kind of a mountain goat.
Aren't Angora goats a breed of mountain goat?
"Caaaaan I come up, please?"
He got up... :)
"Well! How DARE you? I was in the spotlight!"
Just as I was leaving, the neighbors dog, Trixy decided to come visit. I snapped
this while she was trotting down. ;)
Ah, brothers. :)
Animals are so fun to observe, and take pictures of. ;)
Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts.

I would say animals are indeed a wonderful asset to God's creativity. What a dull place this world would be without them.
Do you have/see any animals you enjoy observing? (And photographing!)
