    WhoooHHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    At long last, just as I was starting to wonder if my 9 month old silkie might be a roo, I got an egg!!!!! She was starting to grow major wattles & I was a little concerned but today I found a lovely little egg. Not that little either for a European bantam silkie. I doubt she can lay any bigger. It's my 1st egg here in Israel & I'm so eggcited about it!
