    I am so excited!! I came home for lunch and pulled up bolting lettuce for Stella and Lola. Took it to them and by force of habit, looked in nest box and there it was-an egg!! WHOO-HOO!!!! I know it sounds goofy, you'd think by now I'd get over the magic of an egg, but I never do. [​IMG] Both girls molted and the egg laying stopped. I even resorted to buying a dozen eggs at the store. Just not the same, I'll wait on my girls, thank you very much. I called my DH at work to tell him the good news. He laughed, even when I told him all I need is MORE chickens. [​IMG]

    My leghorn molted and has been eggless for almost 3 months. My EE just started molting 2 weeks ago. My RIR and BR are the only girls laying. I can't wait to find a white or green egg again - I know just how you feel. It is like waiting for that first egg.

    I need more chickens too!
