    I finally got my first egg the other day!!! It was half the size of a large store bought egg... I would post a pic but it takes too long on dial up.

    The only sad thing was, I was not the one to find it. My husband got home and somehow had an internal instinct that there would be an egg that day. He just knew it. He didn't tell me. I got home from work around 10 and had not eaten dinner yet so I discovered the egg when i went to get my dinner. I was so excited because I've been waiting so long.....just wish I could have discovered it first though..

    1 laying 6 to go.
