    She did it! Eva laid the cutest little egg! It was brown with a little bit of a pinkish hue to it. It was so tiny and so cute! I was so excited when I saw it. I left it so my son could find it when he woke up from his nap.

    She didn't lay it in the nest box though. She laid it on the poop board and it cracked.

    Any tips on getting her to lay in the nest box? Also, can I expect another egg tomorrow or does it take a while before they laying regularly?

    I'm trying to include some pictures but I can't figure out how to add them. [​IMG] I am clicking "Img" but it isn't going to browse them the way I thought it would. Any suggestions?

    Quote:Put a golf ball or plastic egg in their nest box. They will figure it out from there. The next time they squat near you start skritching the back of their neck and work your way down to their tail and rub their rump on both sides. They love it.
