    I noticed one of my young hens acting a little funny today ...... pacing, searching, "nesting"...... and since I don't have my nest boxes finished yet, I got a milk box from the garage and put some bedding in it. I made it easy to step into, and just put it on the floor of the coop. She went RIGHT in and promptly layed her (and my) very first egg!!! I know that you guys know how exciting this is!! After I spent some time admiring it (a few hours.... walking by looking at it adoringly), I decided it MUST be my dinner!! I cracked it open into a bowl ..... and WOW .....DOUBLE YOLK!!!!! Extra exciting!!!!!!
