    They FINALLY laid an egg!

    29 week old Polish. I was just about to give up hope until spring!

    Right in the nest box and everything. Just like a normal chicken!

    It's so amazing, isn't it, that they know what to do? Ours just started laying last week and I couldn't believe they put them right in the nest.

    Quote:Done! It's an awful cell phone picture. Maybe I'll get motivated to get a better one later. Here it is here too.
