    Thanks everyone.

    She has been practicing the egg song for a few days, her comb and wattles were getting redder and the squat started a couple of days ago. We have been pretty excited.

    Last night when I was going out to start putting the girls to bed there it was, still warm!

    It is so dark and so completely perfect. We are thrilled!

    I loved my dark pretty eggs from my sexlink. Unfortunately, she was the victim of a hawk attack.
