My SO said I was nuts, but I just knew I was going to get my very first egg today, just by the way one of the hens was acting. I've been keeping an eye on her all day. Sure enough, I leave her alone for five minutes and came back to find the first egg! The hen was just standing up over it to inspect it. I snatched it right away without thinking. Now I feel guilty for taking it from her so fast and anxious too. Did I make a mistake taking it right away? Will this discourage her from laying in the same spot again? Oh, and can anyone tell me how to blow out an egg? I'd sure like to keep it if I can. P.S. The hen was amazingly calm while she was laying it and when I took it. I set the egg aside and picked her up and set her back down in front of the feeder. She went to eating like nothing had happened.
