I have been watching all the wonderful first egg posts and it has been so hard to wait. I knew several of my girls were getting ready, squatting for me, redder combs and they have been checking out the nest boxes. I have been following them around like CRAZY-WOMAN making sure they didn't lay in the bushes. Yesterday morning I left them in the run because I had to know, alas no eggs. This morning I go out pleanty early, let them into the run and when I check out inside the house I find two eggs laid from the roost and broken! I have been dreaming of blowing out the first egg and keeping it on the shelf! I am so upset (slightly happy they are laying, but I sorta knew that egg laying was inevitable). I sure hope it was a first-timers accident. I really can't believe how emotional I got over this. Even my Mom was really upset when I told her. I left the hens inside till about 10:30, then it was just too blasted hot even in the run and I let them go to out under the oak trees. I caught one of my hens several times checking out the nest boxes, I even have one outside of the run, but no more eggs today. I sure hope tomorrow brings a better day egg-wise.
