    I know it's old hat to many of you but I hatched out several chicks of different pure breeds last autumn and got my first egg today from one of them.
    The photo is rubbish as it was taken with my ipad but its a picture none the less. The egg is from a Cream Legbar named Drizzle.
    She is 23 weeks old today!
    Pretty exciting for me and so I had to share here as family and friends just don't get it do they?!
    Waiting on Rain, and Tempest for the next ones. I've Got Drizzle in with a Black Copper Marans so once she nails this skill I will be hatching olive eggers. [​IMG]
