    I bought two EE hens in august from a woman who said they were laying age. I have seen no sign of eggs since I got them. A few weeks ago they finally turned red in the face and one of them even has had an attitude, especially toward my golden retriever. Well this morning I found that one sitting very seriously in one of the nests. After she got off, here is what I found inside:

    The picture turned out really blue, which looks cool, but the egg was a little greener than it shows. But it was still awesome!
