So two weeks ago my husband and I brought home "the girls". I was nervous and everyone on BYC were great to me with lots of info. Well today is my husbands birthday and I've been telling him all along that one of the girls was going to lay an egg for his birthday. Of course he didn't believe me and I was just joking since we didn't know exactly how old they were. But everyday I would tell the girls "Just 9, 8,7,6,5,etc, days and I need a birthday egg". He would just laugh at me. This morning the birthday boy and I move the girls to the run and decide to upgrade the door opening on it. I had given the girls some yogurt in a plastic container (which quickly disappeared) while we worked. If you look closely to the right of the hen you will see the nesting box we keep in the run had been moved out while we worked. Anyway I digress....all of a sudden I notice she is sitting in the plastic container and I grabbed my phone and it was awesome!!!!!Sorry you have to hear me praising her but I was sooooo excited!! What a great present - not the egg necessarily - but getting to witness the laying.
