    Yesterday I heard her sing the egg song and saw her in the nesting box for a few minutes. Today.....again with the egg song in the morning and she sat in her nesting box 1 1/2 hours. She came out singing the egg song. I was like [​IMG] , but NOTHING! [​IMG]
    Is she egg bound? What should I watch for?

    I know! I was a little disappointed in our first EEs egg, because of it's color, but I think it's considered PINK??? I'm SOOOOO happy this new one is GREEN!!!!!!! [​IMG]
