    [​IMG] Well I am so happy, one of my girls has just now starting to lay. I have been counting the days, waiting [​IMG] looking and yesterday I found my first egg from the big light blue girl. Bad news is my young Roo does not yet know why he is on this earth. Good news is that soon he will and I have many Black and some Blue Splash Orp eggs from Bama in the bator that are very close to moving into the hatcher [​IMG] I am in Orpington heaven [​IMG]

    This is the girl that started laying
