We have a chicken!

Yep. One chicken.

She was a gift. She got dropped off here yesterday and she’s making herself at home.

Would you believe this is the first animal I’ve had since the 5 goldfish I named after the New Kids on the Block when I was 10? I’m calling her Sola (Spanish for alone or only one).

Sola was a backyard chicken. She had some friends in her previous home, but predators got them . We’ll have to find her some new friends.

She gave us a lovely brown egg today. Just enough for Ephraim’s breakfast tomorrow! Graham had an idea to take a picture of this cracked egg tomorrow and then compare it to her eggs in a few weeks to see if her improved diet of more fresh grass has made the yolks any darker — and therefore higher quality.  We’ll have to do that.
