    Thought that those who have not seen it happen before may get a kick out of seeing one of our EE hens(Woody) laying an egg.

    She is a five month old hen that has been laying 6-7 pastel light green eggs weekly for about the last month.

    Nice! I love the little spectator chicken head popping up between the camera and the egg layer! [​IMG]

    I know this post was not meant to be funny, esp not in your hens eyes. And, It as interesting to watch - I have never seen egg laying so it was very cool. But, that little camera checker chicken distracted me so much that I burst out laughing at it, and I had to show it to hubby and oldest son. Thanks for the education AND the giggle! [​IMG]
