Bless her little chicken heart- despite her being 8 yrs old, despite the temps being in the teens and 20's, despite everything- Henrietta laid her first egg since she moulted in October! I'm so tickled! And she was so proud!! Usually she makes very soft kind of bruh brhh bruhhh sounds but yesterday she was actually clucking like BUH-GAWCK!! I think we were both astonished! lol! I couldn't help but think of the Miss Prissy cartoons from Warner Brother's with FogHorn Leghorn and Porky Pig when Prissy gets so excited about laying an egg so I hope I'm posting a link to that silly cartoon here to give y'all a chuckle... this should link to it- and maybe this will embed it(?) <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object> If there is a better way to post video or if it's better that we don't if someone could let this little computer tech deficient gal how to do it I'd be most beholden! And just to say it again- I'm so glad this forum is here and filled with other chicken enthusiasts who understand what special and lovely thing chickens are and appreciate Henrietta who is so much like the little engine that could!
