    Isn't that the best feeling ever? After months of waiting patiently ( ha ha )
    one day you look into the nest boxes expecting the usual empty space and
    then THERE IT IS IN ALL OF IT'S TINY GLORY.

    This is our second flock so we feel like 'old hands at it all' - we incubated
    and hatched out most of this flock from our own birds and the others we
    raised from a few days of age onward.

    We got our first little BR egg a few days ago and the second one today!
    Finding those eggs every day never does get old - the eggs just get bigger!

    Congrats on your first perfectly formed little egg!
