    Iris, my standard Cochin, is laying her first egg! It's the first egg of ANY of my girls has EVER laid! I am at work and ridiculously busy, but my hubby is home and keeps sending me recordings of her egg song! She is being very dramatic and carrying on, but I am so eggcited! I wish I was home...

    I will post pics and video later - once I get home.
