    So I have my first egg, I am so happy, but will the girls still love me? Will they still come gallumphing across the yard to me? Now that they are all grown up, do they need me?[​IMG]

    YEAH EGGS!

    I have found mine to be much easier to pick up and handle now that they are laying. They just squat down, and aren't so flighty and skiddish.

    Is that a little toddler potty in your coop?!

    Thanks ya'l.
    The object next to the egg was SUPPOSED to be the next box, she was in it for a little while, but I can't say that I blame her, the temp here is hot and muggy, so she went for comfort.
    I knew you all would understand the giddy feeling. I am just so proud. And they are all so well behaved. Well except for Fiona when she goes for a raisin, I think her depth perception is off. [​IMG]
    I just want to go watch them and forget about work. But I will go on in.....
