    Walked out to do a check on the birds and noticed my female Silver in a freshly dug hole up aginst the pen door. She was panting and her tail was straight up on the door, lol..... Poor girl. Then out popped a pretty pinkish egg..... Fist time I've seen them actually in the process of laying also.... :)

    Hmmm..... I may give the egg back to her when she lays another to see if she wants to set them.... I hadn't thought about it as I was excited to see her lay it... Lol. I have two cabinet incubators and I've promised hubby not to plug them in until we sell our other house..... BUT..... Silkies don't count.... Lol
