    I had just replied yesterday to another post about freeloading flocks that had laid no eggs yet! I even went out to run and had a talk with them about my patience running thin. Well holy Sunday's! I go out later than normal to let them out from coop to run and then look in coop to check food and water and cannot Believe my:cool: eyes! A small brown egg on floor of the coop....I was so excited that my wife could hear me yelling inside the house.

    One proud chicken farmer!!! Amazing how good it feels. I can hardly wait to get up in the morning and see if we have another.
