    Very egg-citing! I'm at work (sneaking peeks at BYC) and everything here - south of Petersburg - shook for about a min.

    My chickens acted the same.. I was just out an hour before collecting my MIL's eggs... Let my Jersey Giants out an they fallowed me down the hill like I had something for them but they have been doing that the past 3 days I thought because I had eggs in my shirt..

    My dog kind of acted weird.. she was attatched at my hip which she knows I dont care for her an stays away from me! (she chews up my children's toys and clothes and poops in my son's room.. she'd be gone if it wasnt for my kids!)
