    She's a 38 week old, Cream Legbar. I'd just about given up hope, thinking I had a dud. But, bless her heart, she was in a right excited state today and when she finally settled enough to lay, it took her all of 10 minutes!

    My YDS arrived home from school soon after and noticed it in the egg rack straight away: "Wow, a green egg? Is it that colour inside too?" (He meant the egg white LOL - or maybe he meant the yolk? [​IMG] ) [​IMG]
