    Well, my spoiled birchen modern game hen, whom I have named Twiggy, layed her first egg today! [​IMG] She is like my little pocket pet. She squawks and squawks until she gets some attention. We have been getting eggs from all of our other 50 ish chickens, but it feels way different when you are more connected to the bird. We also got our first blue egg. We have two silkieXamericauna sisters and we think the egg came from them. We get green, brown, orangish, white, and pale colors, so now its pretty neat to get a blue one. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] congrats on your new fave egg!!! [​IMG] i love my crazy game hen !! im really excited right now bc she has decide to sleep in the nest on 11 eggs!! [​IMG] she had 8 that she sat on all day yesterday but then slept on the roost? [​IMG] today she decided to steal 3 more from eggs (i managed to get 4 away from her, and my DD broke 3 of them [​IMG] ) so 7 for the day to 1 [​IMG] - but she has been sitting on the 11 almost all day (she was cruising around the run earlier [​IMG] but then saw me and jumped back on the nest - not before i got a quick count! ha and i went out a bit ago and she is still on the nest - [​IMG] i dont want to get to eggcited yet but [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

[​IMG] i want some game bantams and am possibly looking to get some fertilized LF game eggs from somewhere soon to hatch a few and keep a roo to breed with her (mamma) and snickerdoodle (her chick) and hopefully some more hens too! [​IMG]
