The First White Egg

Letting the hens out for their early morning walk around the garden I checked the nesting boxes and there in the right hand box, gleaming white, was a small white egg; it was still warm. Finally, KFC has laid her first white egg.
This made sense because yesterday KFC didn't appear to be herself. She didn't follow the other two around and often just stayed in the run. She also appeared more docile and not running away when approached. She obviously had things on her mind.
The egg had a small hairline crack at the pointy end, so there was only one thing to do. Fried egg on toast for breakfast, yummy! Here's to many more small white eggs.
