    And it was not in the box. I found it outside, still warm. My daughter was like, "How mad would you have been if you accidentally stepped on your first egg". I ate it and it was delicious.
    Also, I have 3 hens. Why are 2 of them bothering the fattest one, (Parm). They chase her away from the food and today, before I found the egg, I saw the one pecking at Parm's neck. She looks healthy.

    Congrats! :wee
     
  4. Congrats on getting your first egg!
    The hens pecking “Parm” are just establishing a pecking order. If it gets too out of hand and “Parm” starts showing feather loss or bleeding I would separate the bully hens from her and let her heal.
