    The gals were free-ranging in the yard for a few hours today, and when I put them back in the henhouse, little Lizzie went straight for a nestbox. She's been squatting for a week and a half. I hoped and checked a few hours later and voila! My first farm egg in over 20 years! Husband is making homemade biscuits to eat with our egg to celebrate right now! [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Now if we can just work on the size of the egg...

    It is an exciting day. Now the next 2 weeks will be excruiating if you have to work or leave the house. You'll be wondering did they lay today. Did the others join her? Is today my first 2 egg day?

    Congratz!!!

    Very good idea to post picture of your egg WITH the guilty party!!! I've seen a lot of first time egg posts on here, but can't remember seeing a pic including the culprit.
