    Well I got my first egg today... Of course it was really soft shelled, and must have been laid overnight since it was frozen... BUT Never the less, First Egg !!!

    Congrats on the first egg! If the shells continue to be soft, you might think about adding some calcium to their diet.

    Yep... It was sitting under the roost, in there with all the poo.. SOOOO... I cleaned the coop this afternoon, unleashed a new bag of TSC's finest bag of pine shavings, put 2 milk crates in, with 1 golf ball in each.. We will see tonight if I will have breakfest tomorrow!!

    At least one of my 7 girls are trying to pay the rent!
