    Of course, it happened while I was away on my 11-day biz trip, but Olivia checked vigilantly and I got an excited cell phone message on Monday..... Rita had laid an egg! She then skipped one day but has given us one a day since then. I got home last night and tasted my first homegrown egg this morning: wonderful!!! Phoebe and Hazel are also doing the "egg squat" so hope they will also be laying soon. Rita, by the way, is our Cinnamon Queen Red sex link, and was exactly 20 weeks old when she started laying.

    here is the email announcement that Olivia created and sent around to friends:[​IMG]

    Cute announcement. What a great idea! I think I'll do something similar when my three start laying. They're about 21 weeks and still no eggs. [​IMG]
