We have our first official 2.0 egg, delivered yesterday afternoon by bad girl extraordinaire, Delilah. There were a couple of false alarms earlier in the week, small brown speckled eggs which turned out to be Haley misfires with not-so-pretty insides. I will spare you the details, gentle reader. Those pics would be labeld “G” by MisterProperty, for “Grotesque”.
But this one…this one was perfect inside and out. A lovely dark brown colour, like Hermione’s eggs. (I didn’t know whats shell colour to expect from Australorps, and I am thrilled.) Here it is, to the right of an Abby extra large:
And, upon opening, gloriously perfect:
It’s not like getting a FIRST first egg (and NotHeedleyWendy can tell you all about that; she had her FIRST first egg yesterday, too), but still a thrill. Given the on-again/off-again laying habits of 1.0, I am, in fact, overjoyed.
C’mon, slacker 2.0s; let’s have ’em, already!
