    Well...congratulations! What breed of chickens do you have. They sound very friendly. You must spend a lot of time with them. Don't worry about your co-workers, you should be happy. People who don't have chickens, just don't understand how much fun and how interesting they really are. Also, they don't realize that we are not paying the high prices for those eggs that they pay at the store. Tehe!

    CONGRATS!! I'm new and just got some of my first eggs this week as well...ain't it great? lol I didn't think I would get so excited! The DH thinks I've flipped, but my girls are very friendly as well. I only bought them 2 weeks ago, so I'm suprised they are so sweet to me. Don't feel lonely, I'm a nut too! LOL [​IMG]
