    Little advice for first egg please...

    My BR just laid her first egg, kind of. It was only a half shell, almost rubbery, but there evidently was a yolk inside because it was in the nesting material. I brought the shell in to examine it. At first I thought it collapsed, but on closer inspection, the edge of the shell was rolled...

    Is this good enough??

    hacked off hens

    Well, I went to put the hens up in their coop with the door closed (first time). Thought I could just round them up and coax them in (hence the name grnhrn). Hacked them off and the leader of the pack came after me twice, got me once on the arm. So, got some food and coaxed them up, closed...
