    YAY! Alice is right on time, and only 4 days after Marjorie started laying!~We have 5 eggs in the fridge from MY birds! woop woop! and three aren't even laying yet! haha! Alice laid her first egg after cackling and acting hysterical for a couple hours- "where the *insert your favorite expletive here* do I lay this thing! what's happening to me! I better run around the yard, scare off the squirrel on the bird feeder, run back in the coop, run out, run back in... CAW...CACK....BOWK! oh...what is that? it came out of my...? huh? eh- I don't need it, here, you can have it mommy, I'm gonna go roll in the dirt a while. [​IMG] lol ... can you tell I'm excited?..
