    well i went outside this morning ot check on my chickens and by golly i found an egg, we havnt gotten and egg in over 2 months from this hen so i was so happy, but as we were walking back inside my 2 yr old daughter who was carrying the egg fell and squeezed the egg and it broke, im not sure from her squeezing it or it hitting the ground but she had the broken shell in her hand while the nice big yok was on the ground, but i could be mad at her, if only you could have seen her face, its ok i will get another soon i hope
