    Thank you!!! It was a great feeling. We had another dozen today. The best part is knowing all the girls are laying and doing well.

    When you get an extra dozen, I would highly recommend a homemade angel food cake, which takes 12 whites. I cooked the yolks up for the dogs and fed them to them over a few days.
