    We had 4 RIR we got as chics from the feed store and 3 of them turned out to be Roo's, so into the soup pot they went.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] So Luna has been a bit sad the past week:( but to my suprise she had left us a nice med. sized egg today!! Just kinda neat it being our first egg:) I would really hate to add all the time and money that has been spent to get that first egg, but you know what? I would do all again. It sure has been very rewarding in many ways.[​IMG]
