    Holy cow! One of the Mels layed the first egg today! I am so relieved. This is the first group of pullets that I raised from chickhood so I thought that I had messed up. The egg is beautiful though and I am happy, happy, happy!

    Quote:It's so funny that you said that. I actually did set it aside and for some reason I could pick it out of a pail of eggs.

    We'll have to see what the days to come bring!
