    What a nice Christmas Eve surprise. I have an EE that was an Easter chick. To my suprise, while collecting eggs this morning, there was the prettiest, brightest, perfect shaped green egg in the nest box. [​IMG] Was going to take a picture to post, but my husband and son decided to use it in the Gingerbread Men recipe. Here's the girl, I call her "Hawk"

    Merry Christmas to you too! It has been quite cold here at night (teens) so I've been tossing them some cracked corn before bed. [​IMG]
