A miraculous egg

I dashed down to the allotment this morning to find a miraculous event had occured. Leia laid her first egg. I had pretty much resigned myself to the fact that she would never lay, only strut around looking pretty. I did spend several minutes considering whether Rey had chosen to lay a different coloured egg as I thought this was far more likely than the alternative; Leia actually producing an egg of any type, colour or shape.

Incredibly, at 9 months old, she has finally decided she is actually a chicken! I ran home, cradling the egg, hardly daring to believe it!
