    Our Lucy laid her first egg... she stayed in the nest for several hours this morning and then hopped out and began singing the egg song... but no egg? Later on today I was curious, so I checked out the nest and found this:
    it's small, but it is her first. She doesn't squat for anyone, not even for Waddles the cockerel. The only indication that she was getting close to start laying eggs was her constant squawking and her cone and waddles were bright red. We noticed Alteriah in the nest today, picking up hay and putting it in the nest, she might be next [​IMG] [​IMG] yes, we have been waiting for this day!!

    Congratulations to you and Lucy on her first egg. Tell Alteriah to get going, you need a few more eggs for that frying pan.
