    [​IMG] Understand that after the move she may go into 'egg withdrawal' for a while. That egg was in the 'production line' when she came to you. Frequently the stress of moving will cause a brief cessation in egg laying. Enjoy your new chickens.

    Congratulations!

    If you don't eat it, it will just rot and go to waste. You don't want that do you?

    Thanx everyone... I am planning on eating the egg. I haven't had breakfast yet, about to eat it now. I thought there would be stress from moving, and was surprised when the egg came. didn't give a thought to one already in the production line. when do you think she will start laying again? how long do you think it will last?

    Thanx

    She only skipped one day. I just got one this morning. I'm glad she's feeling more at home. I guess the stress wasn't too bad.
