    I just got back from my first ever girls weekend. We went to Las Vegas and had a great time, but the real jackpot came when I got home. I came home, had lunch and looked at the chicken girls. Shiner had got out of the tractor again, so I went to look for her. I found her in the coop, having just laid her first egg![​IMG] She looked a little confused, and stressed (beak opened and panting) so I picked her up, praised her and got her a fresh drink of water. Our first ever egg![​IMG] And it wasn't under the nasty, thorny rose bush! And she waited for me to get home. Wohoo! Yipee! Thanks everyone for the golfball/fake egg advice; I was really dreading the rosebush. Boy am I excited!
