    cant belive it!! i am in shock!!!
    i got my first egg today!!! it was broken but still some what intact.. she was eating the yolk...? could she have broken it? or sat too hard on it? i am so excited tho!
    i took the egg out and am gonna save it forever! its a very firm brown egg too!


    also, with some mess in the nesting box, should i clean it out,, how well? because thats wheer the egg broke? i took most of it out?
