OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! My chickens are 16 weeks old, so I thought I had another month or more to get the nest boxes built. But this morning Emily didn't come out of the coop when I opened it, so I looked in and found her hunkered down in the corner, putting bedding on her back and squawking!! When she left, there was my VERY FIRST EGG! About half the size of a grocery-store egg, but an egg, nevertheless!!! I'm beside myself with excitement! She laid (she LAID!!) in the corner by where the nest boxes will be, so I'm hoping she'll transition easily to them. Is that realistic? Squeeeeee!!!
